2 youths arrested in shooting of 13-month-old boy


Brunswick, Georgia (CNN) — Two teenagers were arrested Friday in the shooting death of a 13-month-old boy who was in his stroller, according to police in this coastal city.

The suspects are a 17-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy, Police Chief Tobe Green told reporters Friday. He said they are being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Green identified the older suspect as Demarquis Elkins, saying he will be treated as an adult in criminal proceedings. The 14-year-old was not identified because of his age.

“We are turning every stone to get a motive,” said Green. A weapon, believed to be a handgun, has not been found.

Police offered a $10,000 reward for information and have received more than 30 leads.

Sherry West earlier told reporters that the incident occurred at 9 a.m. Thursday as she was walking home from the post office, pushing her son Antonio in a stroller. She said she saw two boys.

“A boy approached me and told me he wanted my money, and I told him I didn’t have any money,” she said. “And he said, ‘Give me your money or I’m going to kill you and I’m going to shoot your baby and kill your baby,’ and I said, “I don’t have any money and don’t kill my baby.”

    Wow! Now they are slaughtering innocent white babies right in their strollers. When are people going to wake up to the reality and stop with the PC garbage.

    Does Georgia have the death penalty? If so, use it. Immediately. If a person can shoot a 13 month old baby in the head, he'll have no problem killing more people later in life. If Georgia doesn't have the dealth penalty, create one and set a precedent. Immediately
