Police looking for teens in shooting death of toddler

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Police with automatic weapons went door-to-door in a coastal Georgia town searching for suspects after a gunman opened fire on an infant as his mother pushed him in his stroller.

Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green said the suspects in the Thursday killing of the 13-month-old boy and wounding of his mother are thought to be from 10 to 15 years old.

In a tearful interview with WAWS-TV of Jacksonville, Sherry West said she tried to shield her baby with her arms, but the gunman shoved her and shot the child in the head. She was recovering from a gunshot wound to her leg.

The Brunswick News reports that police had no motive in the 9:15 a.m. crime.

Police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction
