Cops are looking for a man they say kidnapped his two children while shooting at their mother and trying to light her Bronx apartment on fire, then carjacked someone at gunpoint for an escape vehicle, all with the kids in tow.

Fortunately, the kids, 5-year-old Nahzir Edwards and 2-year-old Mlyliah Edwards, were found in the stolen Honda about nine hours after the 5 a.m. kidnapping, but the suspect, Fitz Edwards, is still at large.

Edwards made it about three blocks on foot before he allegedly held up the owner of a 2005 Honda, police said.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
