Police find bullet they believe killed Ga. baby

Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Police say they've recovered a bullet in the slaying of a toddler who was gunned down in his stroller while walking with his mother in a coastal Georgia town.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering also said Thursday that more search warrants were executed Wednesday night, though he didn't say specifically what new evidence was being sought.

The chief did say investigators recovered a bullet they believe killed 13-month-old Antonio Santiago as his mother strolled him down a Brunswick sidewalk on March 21.

An indictment this week accuses 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins of shooting the toddler in the face. Elkins' attorney says he's not guilty.

A second suspect, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, is also charged with murder, though prosecutors say they believe it was Elkins who shot the child and wounded his mother in an attempted robbery.
