I really hope they find the people who are responsible for this.
A Brunswick (GA) woman was reportedly shot in the leg by two young assailants who then shot her 13-month-old son once in the head as he sat in his stroller. The baby died at the scene.
One suspect is believed to be 13 to 15 years old. The younger suspect may be as young as 10, Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green said, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The woman who is recovering from her leg wound, told police she tried to shield her baby but the armed robbers shoved her aside and shot the child.
“He said ‘I’m going to kill you if you don’t give me money,’ and I said, ‘I swear I don’t have any,’” the mother, Sherry West, said in a tearful interview with WAWS-TV of Jacksonville.
“I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me and then he shot my baby right in the head,” West said.
The incident occurred at 9:15 a.m. in a residential neighborhood. Police are canvassing the neighborhood looking for witnesses.
“This is obviously a terrible day in Brunswick,” Brunswick Mayor Bryan Thompson said. “Please call if you know something. You are complicit in this crime.”
Antonio’s father, Louis Santiago, told the TV station he wishes he could have been there to protect his family.
“He was special,” Santiago said. “He had the bluest, bluest eyes.”
Police are offering $10,000 for information leading to the apprehension of the killers.
