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.

Looking at the facts in the case, there is nothing that De'Marquise's attorney can say or do that will help his client. All the legal attacks against the mother are not going to help his client because the bullets that hit the pastor, the mother, and the baby came from the same gun that his 19-year-old sister threw in the pond. Bullets carry the finger prints of the gun that fired them. I would tell his attorney, "Riddle me that."

The police probably found De’Marquise’s finger prints on the gun after they took it out of the salt water pond. The police found flash powder on his clothing and hands which shows he was the shooter. His friend is going to turn evidence against him to get a reduced sentence. Those pictures of his gang affiliations and his tattoos are going to convince the jury he is not a good person. There is store video of both of them together, so Dominique’s lawyer won’t be able to say they didn’t know each other. If he struck that woman then he's guilty as an accessory to murder and attempted robbery.

The big question is who owns the gun that he used in the killing. Was the gun stolen in a burglary? Is the gun registered to a relative? Was the gun bought off the streets illegally? The serial number on the gun will tell police who owns the gun. The prosecution could bring theft charges for a stolen gun, or he could charge the owner for allowing someone under age to have possession of the gun.

One of his relatives is a corrupt public official who was trying to intimidate witness from coming forward by showing his presence outside of court.

The grandfather was saying in court, in a sincere way, that he was innocent, but at the same time the grandfather knew that his granddaughter had thrown the gun in a salt water pond. He should have told the judge where the gun was hidden while he was pleading with so much sincerity.

I think the grandfather wanted to convince the judge to let De'Marquise out on bond, so he can help him escape on a fishing boat to Cuba. Cuba has a history of letting people ask for political asylum without extraditing them. If people want to stay in Cuba without asking for political asylum they will be sent back to their country of origin.

Nobody with two attempted murder convictions and one murder conviction of a baby, who is facing life in prison is going to stay quietly at home on bond, he’s going to take a speed boat to Cuba.

De'Marquise's mother, aunt, and sister were fighting for a looser that ruined their lives. The worst part is that all their personal belongs will be tossed into the streets by the landlord, so the city garbage collector can take it. People in the hood are going to rummage through their things stealing shoes, pots and pan, dishes, pencils, clothing, De'Marquise's stolen merchandise from burglaries, family pictures, and furniture full of cat hairs.

The sister was in court banging her head on the table because she knows that her belongings would be thrown in the trash and her neighbors would steal her MP3 player with all her songs, her earrings, her new purse she bought, her computer, and her television set. Her brother is responsible for getting them into trouble.
