Police in a small town in southeastern Georgia are going door-to-door in search of two young black boys who fatally shot a 13-month-old white baby boy and wounded his mother after a robbery went awry
Sherry West was walking her son, Antonio, in his stroller when two young black males demanded that she turn over all her money to them. “He said, ‘I am going to kill you if you don’t give me your money,’” West said. When she told them that she didn’t have any money to give them, one of the boys shot West in her leg. The man then said, “I am going to kill your baby,” and shot the infant in the head. The horrific incident has prompted a manhunt for the two black suspects. Police said that one of the boys was likely between 13 and 15 years old, while his accomplice could be as young as 10. Brunswick police officers armed with assault rifles went door-to-door hunting for the two black suspects. West has said that the shooter, the older of the two boys, was a black male wearing a long sleeve red shirt who was about 5-feet 7-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall.
