According to her heartbroken mother, the young woman who was working toward a career as a pediatric nurse and was killed in New York City was a victim of domestic violence and had been attacked by the baby’s father in the past.

Lisa Desort said that her 20-year-old daughter Azsia Johnson’s ex-boyfriend beat her up about six months ago, even though she was six months pregnant with his child.

After the event, she made the allegations that the man, who has not been identified, had been “stalking” and “harassing” her daughter and stated that she and her family had begged the police to step in.

But Desort asserted that he was never detained and criticized the police for “failing to protect her daughter,” who was shot in the back of the head in the Upper East Side last night. Desort claimed that he was never taken into custody.

Although he has not been officially labeled a suspect in the savage shooting that took place in front of scared children in a playground, sources close to the investigation have suggested that the NYPD are searching for the man in connection with the incident.

It was stated that she had sent a text message to her family informing them that she was going to meet her ex-boyfriend only moments before she was found dead on the pavement. Her child did not sustain any injuries.

On Wednesday night, a young woman Azsia Johnson was tragically shot while walking down a street on the Upper East Side while pushing her three-month-old child in a stroller, according to police and law enforcement officials.

The 20-year-old Azsia Johnson was shot in the head at 8:25 p.m. by a suspect who came up behind her at Lexington Avenue and East 95th Street, according to the NYPD and other sources.

Azsia Johnson was discovered unconscious at the site by the first responders. She was taken by ambulance to Metropolitan Hospital, where, according to the authorities, she was proclaimed dead approximately one hour after her arrival.

According to the reports of the police, the armed suspect ran northward on East 95th street while wearing a black hoodie and trousers. Even as early as Thursday morning, people were still looking for him.

At a press conference held on the scene, Mayor Eric Adams stated, “When a mother is pushing a baby carriage down the block… and is shot at point blank range — this shows just how this national problem is impacting families and it doesn’t matter if you are on the Upper East Side or East New York, Brooklyn,” referring to the fact that the shooting occurred at an extremely close range.

A young girl who was playing at Samuel Seabury Playground at the time of the homicide told FOX3 that she mistaken the sound of gunfire for fireworks. The homicide took place near to the playground.

“But then I became aware that there had been a shot fired. “And it really worried me because I was right there at the park playing, and I never would have guessed that this would have happened,” the youngster, who introduced herself as Gabriella, said after the incident.

According to our sources, law enforcement personnel have located one shell casing at the location, and they are currently searching the surrounding area for footage.

Immediately following the event, it was unclear what precipitated the fatal shooting.

Adams swore that the perpetrator of the shooting will be located and apprehended.
