On Thursday, March 21, 2013 a manhunt began for two males suspected of fatally shooting 13-month-old Antonio Santiago and wounding his mother Sherry West while West pushed the infant in a stroller at the intersection of London and Ellis streets, Brunswick.

Two days later police arrested 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins and 15-year-old Dominique Lang.

This is a collection of stories following Antonio's murder and the prosecution of Elkins and Lang.
