Baby murdered in Detroit drive-by possibly connected to killing of 3-year-old on Easter

Abandoned Detroit home
There is a sickness in many of America's cities.

Why aren't the Black Lives Matters protesters screaming out it? Why aren't they picketing the homes of street gang leaders?

From the Detroit News:
A six-month-old girl was fatally shot Saturday afternoon in a drive-by shooting on the west side that may have a connection to the shooting death of a 3-year-old on Easter Sunday, police said.

Police Chief James Craig, standing near the scene where the 1:30 p.m shooting occurred on the 18000 block on Winthrop near Clarita in the Seven Mile and Greenfield area, said a 24-year-old man was injured in the shooting.

Craig said the man and three children, an 11-month-old, the six-month-old and a four-month-old, were playing in the front yard of a house when the shooting happened. The other two children were not struck, the chief said.

The chief said the suspects were in a car that drove by the house a couple of times before the shooting started.
Just yesterday a baby was shot in Chicago.
