Skip to comments.Teen who shot baby in face while robbing his mom counted down from five before he pulled the trigger

The teen accused of shooting a toddler between the eyes during a robbery attempt counted down from five before firing, his alleged accomplice testified today after pointing him out as the shooter.
Dominique Lang testified that he ran into De'Marquise Elkins on the morning of the March 21 slaying. A short while later as the two walked together, they saw Sherry West with a stroller.
Lang says Elkins walked to West and demanded her purse before pulling out a gun. When West refused to hand the purse over, he hit her in the face with it and threatened her baby.
'The baby was in the stroller screaming,' Lang said.
Elkins shot Sherry West in the leg with his .22 caliber handgun, he testified, and then shot the 13-month-old baby Antonio Santiago.
De'Marquise Elkins is charged with murder, child cruelty, attempted armed robbery and multiple counts of aggravated assault in connection to the March 21 shooting.
If convicted, Elkins will not face the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the killing, too young under Georgia law to be executed.
Prosecutors have also accused Elkins of shooting Wilfredo Calix Flores outside a local church ten days before the child was killed.

If the Constitution is to be re-written at some point, I would suggest getting rid of that stupid old “no cruel and unusual punishment” bit.
And just how long did it take for him to figure out what came before 5? Of course since he didn’t do it, the countdown is irrelevant.
I sure hope the guy who runs o’l sparky can count to five real slow-like.
He can count down from five backwards? Apparently a genius compared to Rachel Jeantel.
Frankly, I’m surprised that the “ute” could count from 5 to 1!
Maybe he had the baby count for him.
Well,he wanted to make it a fair fight!
My cousin was killed in a hotel robbery where the killer ordered my cousin and a co-worker on their backs and on the floor whereby the killer took off his sunglasses, paused and aimed the gun at my cousin’s stomach. He did the same to my cousin’s co-worker but only managed to only sever his spine.
I miss the old days.
I’m really starting to lose track of the body count on this black on white murder spree.
We need to make a map to keep track of all these “random” acts of violence committed by “teens”.
I guess it means i’ll have to wear a bullet proof vest everywhere I go. I’d hate to be the object of fun for some bored youths.
I know, but it still not a practice here to be inflammatory, and what I said was definitely that.
You have to be kidding me. There is no question he did it, how can he NOT be convicted. Crazy? Yes of course. Insanity? No way.
YUP....and I have said that in emails to family and friends....and I’m sure they thought I was crazy....probably just STARTING to wake up now....a little late, I fear.
Here's the filthy swine who murdered an innocent baby. The swine will no doubt get a life sentence in an institution Americans who pay taxes will have to finance.
This poor excuse for a human being will be handsomely fed, housed, furnished with entertainment, exercise equipment and all the sex he can handle.
His debt to society is paid for by......US!
It's not an organized attack, but this clueless murderer is an unconscious part of the war negroes are waging against white citizens. It is grounded in hate, jealousy and abject stupidity.
We can thank our God for the Second Amendment. Don't leave home without a weapon.
Pretty soon you won’t be able to use the words “teen” or “youth” in a headline as it will be deemed racist.
And the animal is rabid.
When someone with a gun demands your purse, give it to him. Especially when you are pushing a baby in a stroller.
Meanwhile, Georgia needs to change its laws real soon so monsters like this can be euthanized.
It’s not Georgia. It’s the US Supreme Court that has ruled that those under 18 who have committed such crimes cannot be put to death.
Wrong. Mom should have pulled out a Glock and killed the animal right there. That's what my wife would have done. Ive trained her that she is ultimately responsible for the life of herself and our children.
Well he is a lot of trouble, he does not have any money for JJ’s or Al’s rent a protest scam so it looks like he is on his own.
Hope his death come very very slowly and with the maximum amount of pain and suffering.
When you write about “Yutes”, please use the Y. The Utes are a proud people and would in no way, shape or manner want to be associated with the perpetrators of the savagery we are talking about here.
It's simple, have the death serum waiting for him when he turns 21.
“Wrong. Mom should have pulled out a Glock and killed the animal right there. That’s what my wife would have done. Ive trained her that she is ultimately responsible for the life of herself and our children.”
Brilliant. Start a gunfight on the street with someone who has the drop on you. Not to mention the infant in a stroller between your wife and the thug. All to save a purse with maybe $50 in it. IMO that’s not a smart move.
I can’t imagine the pain and anguish that mother felt during those five seconds of psychological torture. This countdown of shooting a baby in his face in front of his mother is one of the more sadistic things I’ve ever heard. Somebody with such sociopathy likely can never be redeemed and should be done away with.
Whatever noob.....Holders people are going to kill you anyways...and your only chance is to fight. Ive been in a gunfight when someone had a drop on me. Why did I win? Warrior ethos, training, and firepower.
Don't tell me you can't win a gunfight. I've been there.
“I cant imagine the pain and anguish that mother felt during those five seconds of psychological torture.”
Imagine how she must feel now knowing that her son would almost certainly be alive if she just gave up her purse.
The Supremes would just over rule them.
State’s rights are all rassis , you know.
“Supreme Court Strikes Down Juvenile Death Penalty”
“Holders people are going to kill you anyways...and your only chance is to fight. Ive been in a gunfight when someone had a drop on me. Why did I win? Warrior ethos, training, and firepower.”
What a bunch of bull. Way to go Rambo.
Because robbers never shoot their victims if the victim does what they're told, right?
We know exactly when he turns 21 too, so we can do a little countdown of our own for him.
Methinks hes a noob troll.
You can easily lose a gunfight too.If your assailant had your level of training,you’d be dead right now.
The accused looks a bit like Michael Vick.... to me.
>> When someone with a gun demands your purse, give it to him.
...in the face, with a fast-moving projectile.
“When someone with a gun demands your purse, give it to him. Especially when you are pushing a baby in a stroller.”
Yeah. And nowadays they’ll still blow your brains out.
