Baby Shot In Head:
This is a very disturbing piece of news. A woman was taking a walk with her baby in a stroller when she was approached by 2 under 18 black boys who asked her for money. She didn’t have any money so they shot her in the leg and her baby shot in head. How can this happen?
A woman says she was taking her 13-month-old son for a walk in this Georgia town when they were approached by two boys who demanded money, then fatally shot her boy and wounded her.
“He said, ‘I’m gonna kill you if you don’t give me your money,’ and I said, ‘I swear, I don’t have any,’” Sherry West told CNN affiliate WAWS. “I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me and he shot my baby right in the head.”
Both boys then ran into a residential neighborhood of this seaside Georgia town some 30 miles north of Florida, she told police.
Police responding to a 911 call found the baby shot dead and his mother with a leg wound.
The mother told reporters she was pushing her son in a stroller around 9 a.m. Thursday when she was approached by the two boys. One appeared to be 13 to 15 years of age while the other was as young as 10, she said.

Two teenage suspects, one as young as 14, have been arrested in the shooting death of a 1-year-old Georgia boy, who was killed as his mother pushed him in a stroller, police announced today.
Chief Tobe Green of the Brunswick Police Department said that Demarquis Elkins, 17, and a 14-year-old unidentified suspect whose name has been withheld because of his age, were arrested early this morning in connection with the baby’s death, and both have been charged with first-degree murder.
“We are still investigating the motive, but we are trying to turn every stone to make sure we get a motive,” Green said.
