BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Police have arrested two teenagers suspected in the shooting death of a baby in a stroller and the wounding of the baby’s mother.
Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green said Friday that 17-year-old De’Marquis Elkins is charged with first-degree murder as an adult.
The 14-year-old is also charged with murder, but he was not identified because he is a juvenile.
The chief said police were still investigating the motive and searching for a weapon.
The mother, Sherry West, said she was walking near her home Thursday morning with her baby, Antonio, when she was approached by two boys who demanded money. She was shot in the leg and a bullet grazed her ear.
