Police: Bullet Lands By Toddler’s Crib In Darby

Posted: Updated:
DARBY, Pa. -

Darby police are looking for two suspects after a bullet came just inches from a 3-year-old boy while he was sleeping in his crib on Sunday night.

Police say at least five shots were fired around 11 p.m. on 6th and Walnut Streets, one of the bullets traveled about a block to Boathouse Apartments.

According to authorities, the bullet went through a screen window and then through a bedroom wall, which lodged in a humidifier in the boy's bedroom.

This comes a week after shots were fired at the same intersection, police say. Police are afraid this may be the sign of a growing escalation of violence.

Darby police officers spent the Monday night going door-to-door passing out flyers and asking residents if they saw or heard anything Sunday night.

"People handling these firearms have no idea when they pull that trigger that that in that split second where that piece of steel is going to go. In this case it came very close to causing someone's death,” said Darby Police Chief Robert Smythe.

Police describe the suspects as two black males, late teens to early 20's, both skinny build, one is about 5'8 and the other suspect is around 6 ft. Police say the suspects were wearing black or gray clothing.

If you have any information, please contact the Upper Darby Police Department at (610) 586-1100 or dial 9-1-1.
