Upper East Side of New York 20-Year-Old Shot and Killed While Her Baby Was In Stroller

On a regular Wednesday, a 20-year-old mother walking and pushing her 3-month-old baby in a stroller in New York City’s Upper East Side was killed. She got shot up close in the back of the head. Law enforcement believes it was a targeted shooting.

Mayor Eric Adams spoke about the issue of gun violence in his news conference.

“Shot at point-blank range shows how this national problem impacts families,” Adams said, according to the New York Daily News. “Doesn’t matter if you’re on the Upper East Side or in the Bronx.”

He also said, “We lost a 20-year-old woman on the Upper East Side tonight.

She was pushing a stroller when a gunman took her life. More guns in our city mean more lives lost. It means more babies crying as those who love them lie dead. We cannot allow this epidemic to keep claiming lives.”

The shooting happened around Samuel Seabury Playground near the intersection at 95 St and Lexington. The shooting occurred in the evening around 8:25 pm. The baby was not harmed and the shooter is still out there.
