Following the death of  11-year-old Kyhara Tay who was shot and died by a stray bullet on Monday, anger has erupted in the Bronx.

Multiple sources tell PIX11 that the suspect has been taken into custody in connection with the deadly shooting of an 11-year-old girl in the Bronx earlier this week.

Khyara Tay was struck by a stray gunshot while heading into a business on Westchester Avenue on Monday evening, police said.

According to CBS2’s Christina Fan, Borough President Vanessa Gibson joined the girl’s grieving parents at a demonstration on Wednesday, focusing on preventing future tragedies.

“I’ll never touch or see her again,” Tay’s bereaved father declared.

As they returned to the place where their baby daughter was slain, Kyhara’s parents clung to one another for comfort. Her father finally broke his silence and expressed his distress.

“Please, I’m going to spend the rest of my life in pain. I want that individual to be in excruciating pain “he remarked.

At the gathering, local officials attempted to calm parents who were enraged that their children were often caught in the crossfire.

So far this year, 16 children under the age of 16 have been shot in the Bronx, according to the district attorney.

Even more concerning is the fact that 25 children in that age bracket have been detained for gun possession.

“It’s far too simple to obtain a firearm. These young individuals feel at ease in our towns, carrying firearms lawlessly and mindlessly, with little concern for human life “Gibson explained.
