MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — The 15-year-old co-defendant of a man accused of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller during a robbery attempt in coastal Georgia said the 18-year-old counted down twice before firing the shot that killed the baby.

Dominique Lang testified Thursday he was walking with Elkins March 21 when they saw Sherry West with a stroller.

Lang says Elkins demanded West’s purse. Lang says Elkins pulled out a gun when West refused, hit her in the face with it and threatened her baby.

Lang says Elkins fired at the ground and then shot West in the leg. Lang said he saw Elkins point the gun at the baby and heard a third shot.

The trial is being held in suburban Atlanta because of publicity in the case.
