What a tragic story.
A young Georgia woman was out for a walk with her baby boy in his stroller when two youths attempted to rob her, shot her in the leg and shot her baby boy to death in his stroller.
This is just so sad.
The victim said one of the African-American boys did not even look 10 years-old.
USA Today reported:
Georgia police Friday arrested two teenagers suspected of shooting a baby to death in his stroller and wounding his mother during a holdup.
Seventeen-year-old De’Marquis Elkins was charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, said Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green. They were arrested early Friday morning.
WTLV reports the mother, Sherry West, and her 13-month-old son, Antonio Santiago, were on a morning walk Thursday when they were approached by two suspects and shot after demanding money.
Earlier Friday, police spokesman Todd Rhodes said the toddler was shot with a handgun, which has not been recovered, according to CNN. West told the AP that the older boy fired four shots, the first into the ground. One bullet grazed her left ear and another hit her left leg above the knee. She was treated and released.
West told the AP that before the shootings, the gunman asked, “Do you want me to kill your baby?”
