BREAKING NEWS: Mom, 20, is executed execution-style while walking her three-month-old baby in a stroller on New York’s Upper East Side

A mother has been shot dead in a horrifying assault while pushing her baby into a stroller on New York City’s Upper East Side.

The murder took place around 8:23 p.m. Wednesday night on a sidewalk at the intersection of Lexington Avenue and 95th Street, steps from a playground full of children, officials said.

The 20-year-old victim was walking with her three-month-old baby when the gunman approached her and “fired a single shot to the head at close range,” NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell told reporters.

The killer immediately fled on foot eastbound on East 95th Street, police said.
