Two youths arrested in shooting death of Georgia baby

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 pressure was on to catch these kids quickly so that the manhunt didn’t wind up on the nightly news.

Neither one of them will be executed.....

They should be dragged outside...and beat to death.

I don't care if they were white, black, brown, red...or whatever.

This story is the PERFECT example why people need to be able to carry guns..the mainstream media will stay away from this story, and if they do report it it will be a 10 second story..you can bet if it were the other way around and two white youths killed a black baby this would be a national story

Lets jump ahead to the trial.

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.

Sadly, I'm sure you're right. Anyone that could execute a 13 month old toddler like that deserves to die a slow painful death.

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”.

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.

Good catch.

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.

Here’s a tidbit from the little darlin’s FB page, “Hoes don’t excite me money do.” Keep it classy baby-killing POS. If GA doesn’t have the b*lls to execute, may he spend the rest of his miserable life in a, ahem “correctional facility” (cough cough, choke!) as some thugs’ “plaything”.

And it's a damn shame that one of Dr. King's legacies is to have streets named in his honor that run through, shall we say, less than "desirable" neighborhoods.

I live close to Brunswick. Its a small town of about 15,000.

Only a very low IQ perp would think that they could get away with this is such a small town.

I will be honest, that I have been withholding judgment on this, because it seems so odd. But more details are making it a bit more believable, though still odd.

The woman did no shoot herself (shot in leg) and the child, because it would be too evident to the police.

She has positively ID’d the perps, which is also odd for a cover story. Most such people want a way out, but have too much to worry about with making a positive ID claim. If an alibi is provided, it throws the suspicion back on them.

If this is legit, it is a black on white crime that is 100 times worse than little Trayvon Martin's best-case (for prosecution) scenario. Think we'll get a comment from the Bamster given the family resemblance of the perps?

Blacks are the most murderous group in the US. To say it's cultural rather than racial is a distinction without a difference.

I was gonna say that this sounds like a gang initiation, but then I thought that even the Crips or Bloods probably aren’t cold-blooded enough to do this. This is truly demonic.
