NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The NYPD on Tuesday released video of the suspects wanted in multiple shootings that left a 1-year-old boy dead.

The toddler, identified as Davell Gardner, was killed, and three others were wounded when two gunmen opened fire at a family barbeque in a Bedford-Stuyvesant park late Sunday night. 

The child was struck near the Raymond Bush Playground at Madison Street and Marcus Garvey Boulevard.

Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed the shooting on Monday saying the crime was “horrifying.”

"To wake up this morning and learn that a 1-year-old child was killed on the streets of our city by gunfire is just so painful, it's not acceptable, it's not something we could ever look away from. It's something we have to address and stop. It's just horrifying," he said. "It's heartbreaking and it begins with the fact there are just so many guns out there and that is a New York tragedy and a national tragedy... we can't let this happen in our city."

Police are now offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the gunmen’s arrest.
