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."

The kid's parents are already likely in touch with the Crump Law Firm.
Demarquis will likely claim the Trayvon Martin defense -- that little Antonio was looking at him suspiciously as if he had a hoodie on and had a bag of Skittles and sumpin.
And little Antonio was trying to get out of his stroller and he was skeered that he was going to follow him.
So he did the natural thing to wannabe thugs.
Spent a little time in Brunswick myself. Didn’t live there, just fishing with a friend. Figured there was a MLK Blvd there somewhere but never had the chance to visit. Always enjoyed my time in the area. St.Simons, Jekyl Island, cool little town just North, Darien?
Why in the Hell would anyone, even two punks, think it would be a good idea to shoot a baby? The whole world is going to Hell.
The trigger man is a monster without a soul out shred of humanity. Society at large will be much safer if he is executed. This is a crime that is so hard to comprehend that I can only think of it as “Nazi-like”.
You make good points. I guess we’ll see.
Time to call in Sherlock Holmes for this one.
Indiana. They’re so wild over there the teenage girls cut their into bangs and they wear clear nail polish!
Absolutely agree...See my post 62.

I assumed this was black on white crime, just on the names mentioned alone. Picture confirms it.
Execute these bastards. Just save everyone else in the community a lifetime of trouble and violence from these two pieces of garbage.
Nah, all they need to do is claim that their violent actions were caused by all the violent video games they play.
Demarquis Elkins is the 17 year olds name..the 14 year old they didnt release his name I hear its Dominque Lang but he is only 14 so they didnt release it...

No doubt they are Walrus Gungled if the courts are still courts.

I live in South Jawja and I didn't make note of the incredibly insensitive use of the word "boy" for young man.
That said, I can assure you that the yoot named De'Marquis is black.
As an aside, there are many fine young black men down here raised in fine Christian homes...so it isn't a racial thing. It's a cultural thing...it's that I hate America and I hate Whitey thing that Obama is so fond of.
They only did what the NBP asked them to do-kill white babies.
Was he wearin his hoodie??? I'll bet he has Ben Crump's number on speed dial and a picture of St Skittles in his room.
