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 Brunswick, Georgia.
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 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." The boy tried to grab her purse and opened fire when she said tried to tell him she had no money, West said, grazing her head. She said the boy then shot her in the leg.
She continued, "And then, all of a sudden, he walked over and he shot my baby in the face."

One of Saddam Hussein’s plastic shredders would be more appropriate.
Get it on the TV too, cause I want to watch.
Flip the switch, drop them in, and make sure you are wearing your parkas in the first five rows, because that’s the splash zone.
Ad hoc black Einsatzgruppen.
They will cost the taxpayers $5 million before they get out on parole to kill again.
How about, when there are no family values instilled as a child, when the school system passes you through with esteem certificates and free meals, you don't learn to value anything, including a life.
To these kids, killing a baby was no different than stepping on a bug.
“”We are turning every stone to get a motive,”
STUPID statement of the day!
You don’t know how lucky you are ... Back in the U.S. Back in the USSR
Feral scum don’t need a motive.
“Feral animals. There is no rehab for such behavior. Not on this earth, anyway.”
You got that right.
well, i’m glad it wasn’t a staged event,killing by the
parents. thats harder to comprehend. We’re much more
desensitized to these kind of killers.
sorry little baby boy...rip in jesus’ arms.
I don’t know if you have seen it but Saddam would remove hands from victims slowly then force them to run full steam blindfolded off 10 story buildings. These were just his political enemies.
damn Amish kids again...
It was a preemptive strike. If they’d let him live, he would have grown up to be a Zimmerman, who would have fought back.
This is war, people. Obama lovers have called open season on honkies. This is why the Democrats want to disarm the victims.
I was aware of the drops, but not the ‘behanding’.
Dogs are more human than these people.
What in the world made that gun so mad?
Demarquis Elkins.....should be interesting when MSM reports on his background to help understand what causes this type of violence/hate
MSM will imply that the “white-hispanic” baby profiled the two innocents so therefore got what he deserved. Or possibly that it was simply a tragic accident that happened while the two teenagers were returning from a trip to the store to purchase skittles. After the gun accidentally discharged several times the frightened teenagers didn’t know what to do, so ran. Perhaps they’ll be compensated by the taxpayers for their unjust arrest eventually.
