6 People, Including 2 Children, Injured In Brooklyn Drive-by Shooting
It's happened again. This time a little 2-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy wounded by thugs in a drive-by shooting.

Little Arriyanna Prince suffered a gunshot wound to the leg at about 7 p.m. Sunday during the gunfire on Rockaway Avenue.

Witnesses say someone in a white Nissan Altima fired at a group of people playing dice on the street. They hit six people, including the 2-year-old.

"People running up and down the block. People dropping their bikes, their skate boards. People yelling a baby got shot," said one woman who was at the scene. "It was just complete chaos here."

None of the injuries is expected to be life threatening, but another resident told PIX 11 News, "In 50 years out here, I've never seen it this bad."

She went on to say, "I've never thought about leaving here, but I'm thinking about moving tonight."

The incident comes just days after the senseless shooting of 4-year-old Lloyd Morgan who was hit and killed by a stray bullet during a shootout in the Bronx.

On Monday, New York State Sen. Malcolm Smith who was at the crime scene appeared on the PIX 11 Morning News where he offered some ideas on how to stop the violence.

"You need money that is going to be spent on resources for kids to have jobs [and] after school programs. You also need stricter gun laws," said State Sen. Smith. "Maybe more mandatory sentencing, maybe five to six years. You need the parenting skills, that's important."

"But you also need programs like Operation Slug, which intervenes in issues like what happened last night [the drive-by shooting] because they think that was retaliation," continued Smith. "And last, but not least, one of the most important things is WPIX is now co-sponsoring with my office a gun buy-back program."

Smith says he would like to see leaders come together to solve the problems caused by guns on the streets.
