Azsia Johnson Shot Dead While Pushing Her 3-Month-Old Daughter In a Stroller; The Baby’s Father Main Suspect

This is heartbreaking! A young mother named Azsia Johnson was shot dead while pushing her 3-month-old daughter in a stroller on the upper east side. According to the New York Post, she was a victim of domestic violence. Law-enforcement sources and family members say the 20-year-old mother was “allegedly abused by the baby’s father — who is now being sought for questioning by police”.

Azsia Johnson, 20, had been allegedly assaulted by her ex-boyfriend at least once and was wracked with fear when he found out she’d given birth and had been released from the hospital, according to her heartbroken mom, Lisa Desort.

“He was stalking her to the point he knew when she was discharged from Mount Sinai hospital with her daughter,” Desort said.

The young mom even moved to a domestic abuse shelter at one point to “keep safe,” but “somehow he found out where my daughter lived,” Desort added.

Despite her fears, Johnson texted relatives she planned to meet the infant’s dad on Wednesday night because she “felt bad” that he wasn’t in their daughter’s life and wanted her to know him, sources and relatives said.

She was walking with her baby girl in a stroller at around 8:25 p.m. that night near the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 95th Street when an assailant dressed in a black hoodie and sweatpants shot her once in the head and fled.

“She was targeted,” a high-ranking police source said. “It was a close head shot and there were powder burns.” Law-enforcement sources confirmed that Johnson’s shooting death was “domestic” in nature. No arrests have been made and the gunman’s identity has not been released.

Investigators are looking to speak to the ex in connection with the murder, and he is considered a person of interest in the slaying, according to the sources.

Sources said the ex was actively calling family members while on the run to check on the baby, who was unharmed in the shooting.

This is what Azsia Johnson’s mom had to say about her in the wake of the sad incident;

“She worked hard and had dreams of becoming a pediatric nurse in the near future,” Desort said, adding her daughter was currently on maternity leave from her job as a home health aide taking care of the elderly.

“She was a good girl who was never in trouble. She was respectable.”
