Police: Bronx mom killed by stray bullet while getting food for her sons

WEST FARMS, Bronx (WABC) -- Police are investigating after an innocent mom was killed by a stray bullet in the Bronx.

There was nothing 48-year-old Cindy Diaz wouldn't do for her four boys, and Friday evening was like any other.

Diaz was getting food for her sons at a McDonald's on Boston Road in the Bronx, when someone opened fire, spraying the area with several shots.

One of the bullets accidentally struck the innocent mom, leaving her loved ones to now wrestle with the heart-wrenching questions.

Diaz's loved ones now plan to go to city hall to fight for improved lighting, cameras, and police in the area so no other family has to experience an unexplainable loss like this.

Police do not have anyone in custody, and on Monday, the released surveillance video of the suspect.
