Davell Gardner and his family were on Madison Street in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood Sunday around 11:30 p.m. having a cookout when gunfire erupted, according to police.
“A one year old child is dead. The baby was with his family enjoying a Sunday night in the Summer when someone started shooting . Three people were injured and the baby was killed. This. Must.STOP! We as a community, we as a police department denounce this disgusting violence,” NYPD Chief of Community Affairs Bureau Jeffrey Maddrey tweeted.
“Please put these guns down. We don’t need this,” another neighbor, Tommy Holiday, said. “When does this stop? Friday, my nephew was killed in East New York. Today, a 1-year-old baby. When does this stop? This is a shame. This is a 1-year-old baby that has seen no life yet.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed Gardner’s death during a press conference Monday, saying he is “heartbroken.” More
