Manhunt underway for suspect who fatally shot 13-month-old in stroller in Georgia – Nick Vallencia reports


Police responding to a 911 call in southeastern Georgia found a baby boy shot dead and a mother with a leg wound Thursday morning.

The incident in Brunswick prompted a search for two young male suspects, one between 13 and 15 years old, and the other possibly as young as 10.

While the mother said she was the victim of an attempted robbery, police said they had not identified a motive so far. They did not provide any other details of the alleged crime, other than to say that after the "senseless act," both suspects fled on foot.

The mother, who was treated and released from a hospital, told CNN affiliate WAWS that she was walking her 13-month-old in his stroller Thursday morning when the two youths approached her and demanded money.

CNN's Nick Vallencia reports on the search for the two youths accused in the shooting.

    Where is the outrage over this crime? A child shot in a stroller? This is pitiful! The White House is willing to claim "Trevon" as one of his own, but there is no outcry over this situation! Absolutely appalling!!!!
