I begged them not to kill my baby: Tragedy as 13-month-old toddler is shot dead in his stroller by teenage robber in front of mother
Sherry West approached by two boys yards from home in Brunswick, GA
They demanded money before shooting her son Antonio dead as he slept
Police offer $10,000 reward for information about 'senseless killing'
A distraught mother as told how she pleaded with young robbers to spare her toddler's life before they shot him dead as he slept in his stroller.
Sherry West was pushing her 13-month-old son Antonio yards from their home in Brunswick, Georgia, early yesterday morning when she was approached by two African-American boys.
She told how one of them, who looked about 15, demanded money from her and threatened to kill her if she didn't give him any. She told him she didn't have any.
'He said: "Well, I'm going to kill your baby", and I said "Please don't kill my baby."
Ms West added: 'I put my arms over my baby and then he shoved me and then he shot my baby right in the head.'
Ms West began CPR on Antonio but it was in vain and the infant, who had been sleeping when he was shot, died at the scene of the 9am attack
The child's mother suffered a bullet wound to her leg which needed hospital treatment but was allowed home soon afterwards.
Antonio's father Louis Santiago said he wished he had been there to protect his son.

This is a great reason to carry a firearm.
Actually, you’re late. This has been FReeped several times. And this IS making national news in our MSM.
This story makes my BS meter start to twitch uncontrollably.
I’m sure CNN will be sad when these 2 Black Punks get the death penalty, ruining their lives & bright future.
I’m sure I’m not alone in saying they should be burned in a public square.
Did mom submit to forensic testing? Easy to tell if she fired a firearm.
She needs to learn how to speed-dial 911 faster. If she had a gun, the perps probably would have just taken it from her and used it against her.
They deserve to ripped to pieces by a mob.
Do not call the animals Children. They are feral rabid animals who need to be torn apart.
What gun law would have kept this animal from killing this infant. Where did he get the gun certainly ha had no background check. I only hope when they find him he fires one shot that will start a fussilade that will cut him to pieces.
The thought crossed my mind as well.
Something smells rotten in Denmark. As presented, I don’t believe one iota of the story.
Law enforcement is off to a bad start when the mayor resorts to weasel words like this.
This was no child who did this. It was a teenage thug who needs his life rearranged.
She should have used a pen, or some scissors. Perhaps her rape whistle. Have the police concluded whether or not there was a call box nearby? Oh, no! Why didn’t she just urinate all over herself. They would have run away screaming.
Indeed. I carry my 'wallet' in a specially shaped 'carry pouch' that fits inside the waistband of my trousers. Just in case anyone demands money from me in a less than sociable manner or under threat of violence.
There is skepticism out there that this woman may have done it, but I would urge people not to underestimate how sick the nation’s youth are.
It’s not such a huge leap from threatening to slice up an elderly bus monitor like butter or raping a special-ed girl under a desk to shooting a baby in the face.
Welcome to post-Christian America.
So the Brits print something that the American press deliberately suppresses.
That fact that is missing from US news reports is significant. The left wants to keep guns in the hands of illegal, violent criminals, half of which are a member of that minority.
Honest FRiend, no underestimation here.
“2 Black Punks get the death penalty”
They won’t. If they’re underage, it’ll be out at 21 and doing more killing.
