Father Used Baby As Human Shield, Child Shot 4 Times In Philadelphia!

The father of an 11-month-old boy, who was shot four times in Philadelphia last month, is now under arrest in connection with the shooting.

Yaseem Munir Jenkins was shot four times, including once in the head, while inside a vehicle in the city’s Hunting Park section on October 19, 2019.

Authorities say the toddler was in the back seat of a car, along with his father, Nafes Monroe, his stepmother and another man when shots rang out.

Investigators say Monroe used his son as a human shield to prevent off a potential upset narcotics dealer.

The reason behind shooting is that He was using false money to purchase narcotics, knowing that counterfeit money is something that is very upsetting to the dealers, and when they find out that they’re being burned with counterfeit money, they act violently. And this was not the first instance of him using counterfeit money.

Suspect in custody in 11-month-old’s shooting; family speaks out.

The child was rushed to the hospital where he continues to fight for his life.

A family spokesperson released this statement to Action News last month on behalf of Yaseem’s mother:

Monroe was previously taken into custody on a probation violation. He was since been charged with reckless endangering another person and endangering the welfare of a child.
