Pastor says he was shot by alleged baby killer

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Pastor Wilfredo Calix-Flores told Action News he has been afraid of returning to work at his small church on Norwich Street in Brunswick ever since he was shot in his arm during a robbery attempt there on March 11th.

Police now say the gunman who demanded a cell phone and wallet from the pastor was the alleged Brunswick baby killer, De'marquis Elkins.

According to the indictment for murder filed Wednesday against Elkins, the 17-year-old shot the pastor in a robbery attempt 10 days before killing baby Antonio Santiago while trying to rob the child's mother.

"We're comfortable now 6 days into it that the location of the incident and the victim were random," said Chief Matt Doering of the Glynn Co. Police Department.

Dominique Lang, 14, is charged with murder along with Elkins.

The 15 count indictment also charges Elkins' mother and aunt with lying to police about his whereabouts.

Police say a nearby salt water pond is where investigators found the alleged murder weapon, a .22 caliber revolver allegedly thrown into the water by the suspect's sister and mother.

Karimah Elkins, the murder suspect's mother, is also being charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. She was convicted of shoplifting in 2008.

Pastor Calix-Flores tells Action News he's now praying De'marquis Elkins and his family seek forgiveness from God.

I suppose there will be some folks who'll try to blame this other crime on the mother of the baby too.

It’s too bad that the pastor didn’t conceal carry and give the thug a “double tap” during the earlier attempted robbery. Baby Antonio would be alive today if that had happened.

Now they’ve got his sister now too.

4 members from the Elkins family: Elkins himself, his sister, his mother, his aunt — all indicted.

No more alabis left. The breakfast club crime family has been busted.

This family is a one-stop criminal enterprise. The momma tells the police that her baby couldn’t have done it because he was with her from 8 to 11 in the morning. The problem is that she was getting out of jail at 10:30 that morning:

“According to an arrest warrant, Karimah Elkins told officers she was with her son between 8 and 11 a.m. on Goodyear Avenue when she was actually being detained at the Glynn County Detention Center at that time. She was released around 10:30 a.m.”

Yes, I agree. For many reasons, churches need higher security today. And because of their unique status, they need not be “gun free zones.”

Churches all over America are quietly arming themselves. We had a blurb in our bulletin a few weeks back asking for people with military or law enforcement experience to volunteer with our church security. These guys roam our halls at all hours, and to those who don’t know, they look just like congregants doing their church business.

I also have personal knowledge about another youth pastor who has been asked to train and apply for a CCW license.

Its been said many times that one act of self defense that kills the criminal reduces the crime rate.

Hang those two perps and imprison the other two for life. They're all complicit.

I noticed CNN, which had been covering it heavily up to yesterday, has pretty much dropped this story.

“... who’ll try to blame this crime on the mother of the baby..”

Well.. maybe the Mother hired the criminals to shoot the pastor first so when she put a hit out on her own child... it didn’t look suspicious. /s

Give this public defender Gough enough time and he will be alleging that too.

Kill a baby, shoot its mother and shoot a pastor. If this doesn’t send him straight to Hell, I don’t know what would.

You can’t fault people for having low intelligence. That’s the hand they were dealt. You can fault them for criminal and evil behavior though.

Still waiting for the racist moron who lives in our White House to call this poor mother to express his condolences. And since it was a couple of his sons, it would be nice if he'd pick up ALL of her funeral expenses and pay for them out of his own pocket.

But, by then, frogs will fly out of my bummer.

If this perp had been white and the baby he killed had been black, this perp would already be dead. Being what he is, he will probably get his picture on the front page of Newsweek magazine, three squares a day and access to a Koran and the internet and the weight room at a federal facility of his choice for the next twenty-five years at a cost of a million dollars a year to the U.S. taxpayer. Hey that’s why he did it—”Meal Ticket Man”. It was either that or the military. A no-brainer. Plus now they get conjugal visitations and even sex change operations if that’s what tickles their fancy. The reasons to continue being an upstanding “U.S.citizen” dwindle now on a daily basis. While we wait for the Supremes to trash the citizens of California and the civilized world’s definition of marriage, with their ruling on DOMA. Chile, anyone?

Didn’t the sister go on TV claiming that Elkins was having breakfast at the family home at the time of the shooting of the baby?

She needs to be charged with obstruction of justice, also.

What a family!!!

How many generations of this group have lived off the back of the taxpayers with walfare, Section 8 housing, food stamps, free school lunches???

I’ll bet they have been parasites for all of their miserable lives.

Cops show up at the house of the mother of John Doe.

“We are looking for John.”

Mother responds “John is a good boy! He didn’t commit no murder! He was with me here at the time of the crime at 7 am eating breakfast, he doesn’t even own an Uzi! Oh - and he isn’t here.”

They Cops next go to the house of the aunt of John Doe across town.

“We are looking for John.”

“John didn’t commit no murder! He is turning his life around. He was here with me at the time of the murder, playing video games!”

One Officer says to the other “And here we were going to just pick him up for parole violations! You think maybe we should ask him about that murder that took place at 7 am when he was both at his mother’s and his aunt’s?”

No, this was a Black-on-Latino hate crime, as was the attack on the pastor.

As for Gough, the PD who had the rotten luck to be assigned to this case, he thought (or bought is more like it) the family alibi story. Foolish, given the family rap sheet.
