2-year old Mikhy Robinson shot and killed in Newark

2-year old Mikhy Robinson was shot to death, allegedly by 27-year old Wakir Bryant, who was staying the night with the toddler and Mikhy's mother. Bryant had a criminal record, but still owned a gun and had brought it with him.

From the article:

Mikhy's mother, who is not charged and who authorities have not named, said she awoke to the sound of a gunshot in her apartment that morning and saw her son, shot in the head, covered in blood.

Bryant was repeating the words, "I'm so sorry," she later told authorities.

Bryant, who allegedly went to the woman's home that night with the gun, called an ambulance after the shooting. But the ambulance did not arrive fast enough and he drove the boy and the boy's mother to the hospital, authorities have said. After he dropped Mikhy and his mother off at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, he left the scene, authorities said.
