A 20-year-old woman was shot in the head while pushing a stroller on New York’s Upper East Side

A 20-year-old woman was killed by a gunshot on Wednesday night in New York City’s Upper East Side, according to Fox News.

Around 8:30 p.m. ET, the woman was walking a 3-month-old infant in a stroller when the incident occurred near East 95th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.

In a press conference held at 10:30 p.m., NYPD Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell stated that the victim was transferred to a hospital and was pronounced dead one hour later.

The woman was reportedly shot by an “unknown” suspect and investigators believe that it was “at a very close range,” Sewell said.

The woman was shot once in the head, the commissioner claimed, and the suspect, who was described as a male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants, fled eastward on 95th. She claimed there had been no arrests.

“We’re going to find this person that’s guilty of this horrific crime,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said in the press conference. “We’re going to find him and bring him to justice … to make sure that innocent person receives that justice.”

When commenting on the event, Adams added that the day before the woman’s tragic death, he spent the entire day addressing the “over-proliferation” of guns on the streets of New York City.

The mayor also said that before the shooting he was attempting to sort out how to address the issue of “how there is just no fear on using these guns on innocent New Yorkers. And this is the result of that.”

The baby that was with the woman at the time was reportedly unharmed during the shooting.
