Two men have been taken into custody in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, this morning in connection in the gang-hit shooting of 1-year-old Antiq Hennis that was meant for his father.

According to the New York Times, the NYPD tracked the two suspects to the neighboring state.

The Daily News reported that they were "hiding out there with people he knows, sources said." The names of the two people in custody are not immediately known.

A police official described the suspects to the Times as both being in their 20s. They have yet to be formally charged, but one of them is believed to be the gunman. It is not clear what role the second suspect played in the slaying.

Antiq Hennis, a 1-year-old child, was being pushed in a stroller by his father, Anthony Hennis, 22, in Brownsville, Brooklyn, at 7:20 p.m. on Sunday, September 1, when a gunman attacked the father and son. The man shot the baby in the head, killing him, reported CBS New York.
