Police armed with automatic weapons are going door-to-door in a coastal Georgia town in a frantic search for two young suspects after a gunman opened fire on an infant as his mother pushed him in a stroller.

An 11 a.m. press conference has been scheduled in connection to the Thursday morning shooting, Brunswick Police Department officials told Investigators have received "numerous tips" in connection to the incident, Officer Todd Rhodes said, declining further comment.

The suspects in the killing of the 13-month-old boy and wounding of his mother are thought to be as young as 10 years old, Brunswick Police Chief Tobe Green said.

"He said 'I'm going to kill you if you don't give me money,' and I said, 'I swear I don't have any,"' the mother, Sherry West, said in a interview with Jacksonville's WAWS-TV.

West said she attempted to protect her baby, Antonio but shots rang out, striking her in the leg and her son in the head.
