WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - The fact that a 1-year-old child is alive could be nothing short of a miracle.
Police in Mt. Vernon, New York, say gunmen opened fire on a man while he was cradling his 1-year-old son outside his house Sunday morning.
The attackers fired four to six bullets, 1 of which hit and killed the 18-year-old father. The child somehow emerged without any injuries.
Mt. Vernon's Police Commissioner says the baby was "extremely lucky."
He says the father had apparently taken the crying baby outside to calm him. When he was shot, he staggered back inside, handed the baby to a relative, and then collapsed.
Police say they have several leads and expect to make an arrest.
