Both men were arraigned as fugitives in Pennsylvania. Wright then waived extradition in Pennsylvania on a weapons charge and Breland on a parole violation, the newspaper reported.

The killing was at least the second case of a toddler being shot to death in a stroller this year. In March, a woman walking home from a post office in Brunswick, Ga., with her 13-month-old son was accosted by a gunman who demanded her purse and then shot her in the leg and fired a shot at the child in his stroller, killing him, authorities said.

New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the motive for the shooting is still unclear.

Witnesses have said the men were standing in the street when Wright handed the gun to Breland, who they allege did the shooting. The gun has not been recovered.

On Friday evening, hundreds attended a funeral for Antiq held at the Grace Funeral Chapel in Ozone Park in Queens. The New York Times reported he was viewed in a small white coffin, wearing a white suit and a Yankees hat.

Only the father was present with the baby at the time of the shooting. He has not cooperated in the investigation, according to Kelly.
