  • BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Police were combing school records and canvassing a coastal Georgia neighborhood Friday for a pair of suspects between 10 and 15 years old accused of killing a baby in a stroller and wounding his mother in an attempted robbery.

    The mother, Sherry West, told WAWS-TV that two boys approached her and demanded money Thursday morning while she was walking near her home in Brunswick, about 80 miles south of Savannah.

    West said she insisted she didn’t have any money and tried to protect her son, Antonio, before one of the boys opened fire.

    “I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me, and then he shot my baby right in the head,” West said. She was shot in the leg.

    Police spokesman Todd Rhodes gave few details about the investigation Friday, but said no weapon has been found and that investigators were checking school records for leads.

    Several people in the neighborhood called 911 after they heard the gunshots fired, but Rhodes said investigators believed that the mother was the only witness to what happened. Rhodes described the neighborhood as safe

    “Understand this: There is no clear motive right now,” he said.

    He urged anyone with information to call Brunswick police. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

    One thought on “Teens Shoot Baby in Attempted Robbery

    1. This story gets stranger and stranger every minute. I sure hope this isn’t another case of a mother not wanting to be a mother anymore and blaming the black boogie boys for something she’s done.
