Two men have been arrested for shooting killing a one-year-old boy in a gangland dispute with the boy's father. The two men were taken into custody in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, the same day of 16-month-old Antiq Hennis's funeral. The suspects are awaiting extradition to New York.

16-month-old Antiq Hennis was caught in the crossfire in Brownsville on September 1, about a block from where he lived. His father, 22-year-old Anthony Hennis, was the suspected target of the shooting.

The boy was hit in the head, and pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital. The elder Hennis made headlines this week for refusing to cooperate with police in hunting down the suspects.

The Wilkes-Barre Police Department has yet to confirm the names of the two suspects to Runnin' Scared.

Update: CBS New York reports that 19-year-old Daquan Wright and 23-year-old Daquan Breland are the two suspects in custody.

Need to arrest the dad on child abuse charges. If you are in a gang and put your child in danger because of said gang activity then if anything happens to that child, then the dad should be charged.

@avman88 Why do white people have lock up so called Black people on the brain ? The man's son was shot by someone other than himself and the first thing that comes to a hate consumed person's mind is put the Black father (who didn't shoot anyone) in prison. Why is that, could it be just because he is a so called Black man ? Would you say the same thing if he were white, I think not.

@tariqw123 @avman88 You idiot, this "man" refused to cooperate with police in an investigation of the murder of his own son.

@tariqw123 @odh202 @avman88 I didn't say I wanted to lock him up.  I said he was an idiot, and a terrible father.  Seriously, in what context is it right for him to not cooperate with police in an investigation involving his own son?  I don't care what his race is.

@odh202 @tariqw123 @avman88 You are the one who is an idiot, you have no idea what the dynamics he nor anyone else involved in this case are dealing with and the first and only thing that comes to your mind is to lock up someone who didn't commit any crimes, for no other real reason but the fact that he is a so called Black man.
