BRUNSWICK, GA (AP) -

Neighbors of a Georgia woman whose baby was fatally shot in his stroller made frantic calls to 911, some weeping and pleading for help.

Police in the coastal city of Brunswick released recordings Saturday of three 911 calls placed right after the shooting.

One woman sobs as she says: "Somebody shot this child ... Please we need everything we can get."

No callers reported seeing the shootings Thursday. That morning, 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was killed and his mother was wounded. Sherry West says a teenager shot them because she refused to give him money.

One caller solemnly tells an operator: "No, the baby's not breathing." He says the child was shot "right between the eyes."

A woman can be heard screaming in the background just before police arrive.

Police arrested 17-year-old De'Marquis Elkins and a 14-year-old male. Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder. The younger of the two is not identified because he is a juvenile.
