“Outraged, disgusted, and heartbroken by the violence this weekend that claimed the life of an innocent 2-year-old and left another infant fighting for his life,” Mayor Jim Kenney said on Twitter[1] on Sunday.

“Philadelphians should not live in fear of violence that could take away a child’s life,” he wrote in a second tweet[2]. “But for too many, this is a sad reality.”

In August, after six police officers in Philadelphia were shot[3] while trying to serve a warrant, he pleaded with state and federal lawmakers for stronger gun restrictions.

“I say to our state and federal lawmakers: Step up — or step aside,” he said at the time.

Christine M. Coulter, the acting police commissioner, spoke to reporters at the scene where the girl was shot.

“No child should be murdered in their living room, it’s just terrible,” she said, adding that she believed that the house had been targeted.
