    The latest random murder in NYC strikes a nerve in a tony part of town:

    New York City woman pushing baby in stroller on Upper East Side shot dead | Fox News

    A shooting on New York City's Upper East Side on Wednesday night has left a 20-year-old woman dead.

    The shooting happened on East 95th St and Lexington Ave in Manhattan when the woman was pushing a 3-month-old baby in a stroller around 8:30 p.m. ET.

    The victim was taken to a hospital and was pronounced dead an hour later, NYPD Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell said in a 10:30 p.m. press conference.

    The woman was shot by an "unknown" suspect "at a very close range," Sewell said.
    For transcripts of the news conference:

    NY Mayor Blames 'Oversaturation of Guns' as Woman Shot Dead Pushing Stroller (yahoo.com)

    Thank you for coming. Joining me here is Mayor Adams, Chief of Department Kenneth Quarry, and Captain Allen from the detective Bureau Manhattan North. I want to remind you the information I'm about to give you preliminary as this incident is only two hours old.

    Earlier this evening, at approximately 8:23 PM, officers responded to a report of a person shot opposite 164 East 95th Street. Upon arrival, officers discovered a 20-year-old female, who was unconscious with a gunshot wound to her head. EMS responded to the scene, transported the victim to Metropolitan hospital, where she was pronounced deceased at 9:20 PM.

    Our preliminary investigation revealed that the 20-year-old victim was pushing an approximately three-month-old in a baby stroller on East 95th street when an unknown person approached her and fired a single shot into her head from a very close range. Immediately after the shooting, the suspect fled the scene on foot heading eastbound on East 95th Street. He is described as a male, who was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt, sweatpants, and black pants, all black.

    At this time, there are no arrests. And I am urging anyone who has information that can help us with this investigation to please call us at 1-800-577-TIPS. All tips will be kept strictly confidential. I'll pass it now to the mayor.

    ERIC ADAMS: Commissioner. I'm joined here with Councilman Powers and Councilwoman Menin, who both represent parts of Manhattan. This is Councilman Powers district.

    Earlier today, the police commissioner and I were with the attorney general, talking about ghost guns. Later in the day, we were with the US Senator, Senator Gillibrand, talking about gun trafficking. This entire day, we have been addressing the problem of the over proliferation of guns on our street, how readily accessible they are, and how there is just no fear in using these guns on innocent New Yorkers, and this is the result of that.

    These are real story, real lives, when a mother is pushing a baby carriage down the block or an individual, a woman is pushing a baby carriage down the block and is shot at point blank range, it shows just how this national problem is impacting families. And it doesn't matter if you are on the Upper East Side or East New York Brooklyn, the oversaturation of guns and dangerous people that repeatedly leave our criminal justice system to continue actions like this, it is what's making the New York City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies here in New York, across the country, and across the country, difficult to fight this issue. We're going to continue to do our job.

    3,300 guns remove off our streets that we're not allowed to hurt innocent people, and we're going to continue to move forward. But we do need help from Washington from the state, from our criminal justice system. We have been clear on that.

    And we're going to find this person guilty of this horrific crime. We're going to find him and bring him to justice. We need the Justice system to make sure this innocent person received that justice that we're asking for.

    - That's under investigation at this time, it's too early to say. We're checking history. We'll have more details in the future. We can't confirm that at this time it's under investigation. Thank you.
    I'm sure the mayor didn't like leaving his prime dinner hour to talk about the "proliferation of guns" and how this murder "shows just how this national problem is impacting families." Indeed.

    Paid hit.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

        I heard on the radio this afternoon that it was a "domestic issue" The ex-boyfriend and father of the child had been stalking and threatening the victim, who was on her way to see her current boyfriend when she was shot. The victim's family had alerted the police to the threats to no avail.

          1st Degree I would say. Took the time to dress in black complete with hoodie. Wasn't exactly spur of the moment.

            And because of NYC's only cops and criminals (and the well connected) can carry guns pogram, she was not permitted to carry a firearm to potentially defend her life.
            But the new Red Flag laws would have prevented her killer from owning and possessing a firearm, which he probably didn't legally own and almost certainly didn't legally carry, would have protected this woman and she would be alive today.
            We are so fucked.

              When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.
