A Georgia woman says a teenager trying to rob her at gunpoint asked "Do you want me to kill your baby?" before he fatally shot her 13-month-old son in the head.

Sherry West wept Friday as she told The Associated Press she pleaded with the gunman that she had no money to give him.

West was walking with her baby, Antonio Santiago, in his stroller near their home in coastal Brunswick. The mother was shot in the leg and says another bullet grazed her ear.

Police are combing school records and canvassing neighborhoods as they search for the gunman and a young accomplice a day after the slaying Thursday.

Despite West's account of the shooting, Brunswick police spokesman Todd Rhodes says there is "no clear motive."
