    Police arrest 2 teens in georgia baby's killing

    BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) -- A pair of teenagers was arrested Friday and accused of fatally shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face and wounding his mother during their morning stroll through a leafy, historic neighborhood in southeast Georgia.
    Sherry West had just been to the post office a few blocks from her apartment Thursday morning and was pushing her son, Antonio, in his stroller as they walked past gnarled oak trees and blooming azaleas in the coastal city of Brunswick.
    West said a tall, skinny teenager, accompanied by a smaller boy, asked her for money.
    "He asked me for money and I said I didn't have it," she told The Associated Press Friday from her apartment, which was scattered with her son's toys and movies.
    "When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They're expensive. And he kept asking and I just said `I don't have it.' And he said, `Do you want me to kill your baby?' And I said, `No, don't kill my baby!'"
    Authorities said one of the teens fired four shots, grazing West's ear and striking her in the leg, before he walked around to the stroller and shot the baby in the face.
    Seventeen-year-old De'Marquis Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, Police Chief Tobe Green said. It wasn't immediately clear whether the boys had attorneys.
    Police announced the arrest Friday afternoon after combing school records and canvassing neighborhoods searching for the pair. The chief said the motive of the "horrendous act" was still under investigation and the weapon had not been found.
    "I feel glad that justice will be served," West said. "It's not something I'm going to live with very well. I'm just glad they caught him."
    West said detectives showed her photographs of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman.
    "After I picked him, they said they had him in custody," West said. "It looked just like him. So I think we got our man."
    West said she thought the other suspect looked much younger: "That little boy did not look 14."

    News from The Associated Press


    Ok, I am not posting this to be another in the long overplayed line of gun rights bashing threads. So, other than the AP obviously grammar challenged writers, Anyone notice the absolute shoddy police work here? I'd be surprised if these two teens are even indicted....Thoughts?

    Personally, I hope they get punished to the full extent of the law, if they are tried and found guilty. Little scumbags.

    I've been to Brunswick a few times. It's a completely bigoted, backwards town. It wouldn't surprise me at all if racial slurs were used which provoked the attack. Let's allow the facts to come to light before we rally the lynch mobs here.

    Doing life as prison pass-arounds works for me for those two

    yeah, I am sure the 13 month old kid did something that, in your mind, mitigates those two pissants shooting the kid to death

    Yes, by all means, a racial slur is a good reason to kill someone's baby. For God's sake.

    I'd personally opt for the death penalty.

    its a typical bit of reasoning in his posts. Too bad mom wasn't packing heat and could kill those two assholes. sounds like society would be better off without either of them consuming any more oxygen

    I'm not condoning it, just saying there's probably more to the story.
