A 5-year old child was wounded as her family returned to their Hughes Avenue home after attending a baby shower.
Police were called to 1997 Hughes Avenue at just after 1 a.m., on November 25. Authorities say Hailey Dominguez was shot in the stomach and was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital.
Hours later detectives at the 48th Precinct were questioning Angel Morales, 18, who was later charged with attempted murder and weapons possession. He remains held on $100,000 cash bail.
Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., issued a statement that stated, "It is extremely disappointing that gun violence continues to plague our borough, especially during this holiday season where families should be looking forward to spending time together and enjoying the warm feelings brought on by the holidays rather than watching over their shoulders in fear."
