Two Ga. teens arrested for murder of baby in stroller

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Georgia teenagers have been arrested, after a woman says they shot her 13-month-old son in the head.

Police say 17 year old De'Marquis Elkins is charged with first-degree murder as an adult.

A 14 year old is also charged with murder, but he was not identified because he is a juvenile.

Sherry West says she was walking near her home 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.

And then she says the two shot Antonio.

I took him out of the harness and tried to perform CPR. I saw his lungs inflating but he was not breathing," said West.

The chief said police were still investigating the motive and searching for a weapon.
