A black man shot the mother of his children, then tried to set her apartment on fire and kidnapped their two children
Fitz Edward, 29, stormed into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and fired a shot at her. He then started a fire and grabbed the children, five-year-old Nazie and two-year-old Mlyliah. Edward fled the scene with the kids, making his getaway in their mother's car. The car was later found abandoned in Harlem with the children still inside. The kids were barefoot and wearing only diapers when they were found. They are uninjured and their mother is recovering, police said.
