NEW YORK - Police are on the hunt for the gunmen who opened fire during a cookout near a playground in Brooklyn shooting and killing a one-year-old boy and injuring three men.
The gunfire erupted in front of the Raymond Bush Playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant at 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
Four people were shot including a 27-year-old man who was struck in the ankle; a 35-year-old man who was shot in the groin and a 36-year-old man who was shot in the right leg, said police.
The men are expected to recover.
The baby was pronounced dead at Maimonides Medical Center just before 3 a.m. Monday after being hit in the stomach while sitting in a stroller, said police.
Witnesses said two men jumped out of a car and fired multiple shots at the group before driving away.
There were no descriptions of the suspects.
Nineteen people were shot in New York City over the weekend including two children, 12 and 15 years old, according to police. Both were expected to survive.
There were three people shot during the same time period last year.
