Baby Killed, 2 Other Children Wounded in Syracuse Shooting

SYRACUSE, N.Y.  — A baby girl was killed and two other young children were wounded in a shooting in Syracuse, police said.

Police were called to a disturbance shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday and found the victims on Grant Avenue, authorities said.

The baby girl was shot multiple times, Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick told CNY Central.  He said the older girls are sisters, and their injuries are non-life-threatening.

James Bolds  told the Post-Standard of Syracuse that he was the uncle of the baby, who died at Upstate University Hospital. "Somebody has the devil in their mind," Bolds said of the gunman. "They have anger in their hearts."

No arrests have been made.
