Charles Hynes has met with the
Anthony Hennis, father of 16-
month-old Antiq Hennis, who was
killed when a gunman opened fire
at his father at Brownsville, Brook-
lyn on Sunday.
A report from the New York Daily
News yesterday said the police were
following several tips.
It also recounted Cherise Miller s
last memory of seeing her son alive.
"I went in my mother s room and
he s jumping on the bed, laughing.
I didn t yell at him. I was just sitting
there. I just sat and I watched him,"
Hennis, who police believe was
the intended target of the bullets
that killed his son, has a record of
23 arrests, mostly for drug-related
charges, the newspaper said. Hennis
was reportedly born in Trinidad.
It added community sources and
the police said Hennis was a "top-
tier" member of the Crips street
gang adding that the rivalry
between the Crips and Bloods gangs
was a possible motive for the shoot-
Hennis, who initially refused to
speak with police, met Hynes on
"We re on top of this, that s all
I can tell you...I tried to console
them. It s very, very difficult in
these circumstances," Hynes was
quoted as saying.
Community leaders planned to
boost the reward for the killer from
US$12,000 to US$22,000 and
would also ask for more police pro-
tection in the neighbourhood over
fears that Hennis and his friends
would take justice into their own
hands, the newspaper added.
