Georgia police are going door-to-door in search of two young suspects who are accused of shooting and killing a 1-year-old boy as his mother pushed him in a stroller.

Sherry West, the mother of the child, told police she was walking her 13-month-old son, Antonio, in a stroller Thursday morning through their Brunswick, Ga., neighborhood when two African-American boys approached her and demanded money. When she told them she didn't have any money, West said one of the boys pulled out a handgun.

"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,"' West told WAWS-TV in Jacksonville, Fla.

West said she tried to shield her child with her arms, but the gunman shoved her and shot the baby in the head. West was shot in the leg.

Police in the coastal city located about 80 miles from Jacksonville, today said that no suspect had been named and no weapon had been found.

Going on West's description, police said they were looking for two African-American boys between the ages of 10 and 15 years old. They did not yet have facial descriptions or names of the suspects.

Brunswick Police Department spokesman Todd Rhodes said the boy suspected of shooting the baby is believed to be the older of the two: a black male between the ages of 13 and 15, about 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, with curly hair, who was last seen wearing a red shirt. The second suspect, who is believed to be between the ages of 10 and 12 and not as tall as the other boy, was last seen wearing a black shirt.

"We are investigating every possible angle and every possible probability that would cause something like this to happen," Rhodes told ABCNews.com .

When asked if police were investigating whether the mother could be making up the story, Rhodes said, "There is nothing out of the question. We are not overlooking anything."

Rhodes confirmed that the weapon used was a handgun but declined to describe it further.

Rhodes said multiple agencies and municipalities, and a SWAT team, from the coastal city of about 15,500 people were assisting in the search throughout the Glynn County area. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, which has a station in Brunswick, provided a helicopter to help in the search.

Police said the Glynn County School Board Campus Police were assisting law enforcement in combing school attendance records for leads.

They have two kids in custody, but I'm not convinced about this story yet. Something just isn't right. Why shoot the baby yet only graze the mother in the leg. She was still able to walk.
Do the names Charles Stuart and Susan Smith ring a bell? Just a thought.

You may be right to not just to conclusions. Seeing the picture of the baby put me over the edge.

If this is as bad as it may seem, it could lead to a reverse Trayvon situation.

They have them. You an bet GA will try them as adults. And the woman's 18 year old was stabbed to death a year or two ago in NJ.

Drugs. If they were high on drugs they'd shoot a baby and not even know it.

They had a guy in the Stuart case, too. Held him for months and nearly started a race war in Boston when the truth came out:

Doesn't look like it, from this:

One of the teens fired four shots, grazing West's ear and striking her in the leg, before he walked around to the stroller and shot the baby in the face.

The baby looked like George and the kids took pity on it.

The kids were obviously your kind of people...maybe you'd like to join them on death row.
