Georgia police are looking for two boys—one about 10, the other maybe 15, max—accused of shooting a baby to death in his stroller during a robbery attempt, reports AP. The 13-month-old's mother tells WAWS-TV that the boys approached her on the street in broad daylight yesterday and demanded money. When she said she didn't have any, the older boy pulled a gun. "I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me and then he shot my baby right in the head," said Sherry West, who suffered a bullet wound to her leg. Police in Brunswick, a coastal town 80 miles south of Savannah, have offered a $10,000 reward in Antonio's death. (Read more murder stories.)
