Mother, 20, Was Shot In Back Of The Head As She Pushed Three-Month-Old Baby In Stroller In NYC's Exclusive Upper East Side

Desperate manhunt for gunman who shot dead mom, 20, execution-style in the back of the head as she pushed her three-month-old baby in stroller in NYC's exclusive Upper East Side 
A manhunt is on for the person who fatally shot a young mother in the back of the head in a chilling point-blank execution while pushing her baby in a stroller on the Upper East Side of New York City, just a few yards away from a playground. The murder occurred at around 8.23pm Wednesday, on a sidewalk at the intersection of Lexington Avenue and 95th Street in the exclusive neighborhood, across the street from a playground filled with children, officials said. The 20-year-old victim was walking with her three-month-old baby when the hooded shooter approached her and 'fired a single shot into her head from a very close range,' NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell told reporters. City Council member Julie Menin, who represents the area, said on Twitter that the victim was the child´s mother. Her identity has not been released pending notification of family. The baby was not injured, according to NBC New York. The killer, dressed in a black hoodie and sweatpants, immediately fled on foot heading eastbound on East 95th Street and remains at large, police said. The Manhattan neighborhood is the most affluent in New York, with average house prices at an eye-watering $1.5million and private school fees exceeding $58,000 per year. Horrified children at the nearby playground witnessed the horrific shooting, and one girl described hearing a loud 'boom' that she quickly realized was a gunshot. A 10-year-old girl, who was at the playground with her brother and aunt, told that she heard an 'extremely loud boom' and saw a woman fall to the sidewalk. 'I was really confused, because I thought maybe this was fireworks. But then I realized that no, this is serious and that there was a gunshot,' the young witness said. 'And it really frightened me because I was right there at the park playing and I never would have ever thought that would happen,' she added. 'I saw a lot of people running, and I saw a woman down there, she fell,' the girl recalled. Source
