Teen Gunman Shoots 13-Month-Old Infant In The Head

As Sheryl West walked with her infant son in a stroller Thursday morning, she was approached by a gunman and a younger boy, who attempted to rob her at gunpoint. After asking her for money that she didn’t have, the gunman, who was a teenager, asked her, “Do you want me to kill your baby?”. The teen then fired four shots.

The first shot went into the ground. The second shot went past her head, grazing her ear. He then shot West in her left leg, right above her knee. “I didn’t know I was hurt”, she said during her interview with The Associated Press. “The boy proceeded to go around to the stroller and he shot my baby in the face. And then he just shoved me when I started screaming and he ran down London Street with the little boy.”

Police have been searching through nearby school attendance records to try to find the two young boys assumed to be between the ages of 10 and 15. West believes the youngest boy was about 5-years-old. Other neighbors heard the gunshots and called 911, but it seems that the mother of the slain infant was the only eye-witness to the crime.

No weapons have been found at this time and no clear motive knowledgeable to the mother or investigators. There is a $10,000 being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

    And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it seem like a few of these responses come across like they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
