No comments
A couple in the small town of Sodus in upstate New York were brutally gunned down in a targeted hit on their street on Monday, while their baby sat in their car.
Joshua Niles, 28, and Amber Washburn, 24, were on outside their home in the neighborhood outside of Rochester on Monday at 2pm when someone wearing a hood shot Joshua.
He crumpled under the car before the suspect turned to Amber and shot her while she was still inside the vehicle.
After the horrific shooting the individual, who is still at large, fired several more rounds into Joshua, before fleeing off on foot.
The couple's three-month-old baby was in the backseat of the car, and was unharmed.
The incident unfolded near the Sodus Central School District where the schools were placed temporarily on lockdown, and remained closed Tuesday while the incident was being investigated.
The couple had lived on the street for less than a year, and police are saying this was a targeted hit on the couple, however they have few leads as to who the suspect is. 
They add there is no current danger to the community, despite the jarring incident. 
The couple's neighbor, Anthony Mancine, who witnessed the shooting first hand, told News10NBC: 'I heard what I thought was fireworks then I glanced over there, saw a guy fall under the car.'
He added 'The person [suspect] was shooting like six to seven rounds.' 
Mancine called 911 immediately. 
'As I was talking to 911, the person turned and shot at the girl in the car,' Mancine added.
'Then the person [suspect] turned and shot at the individual on the ground and fired another six to seven shots into him.'
The suspect was last seen wearing a dark-hooded sweatshirt and a green hat. Police have declined to elaborate if the shooter is a male or female.  
Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
