BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) -

Officers from the Brunswick Police Department responded to the area of London Street and Ellis Street in regards to a medical emergency at approximately 9:16 a.m. March 21. When officers arrived, they discovered that a mother and her infant son were both victims of gun shots.

According to authorities, the mother sustained a non-life threatening gun shot wound and was transported to the Southeast Georgia Health System for treatment. The 13-month-old male infant was found dead at the scene.

Authorities say the shooting occurred while the mother was walking her child in a stroller. Police say the two children confronted the mother and child, got into some sort of altercation and shot them multiple times.
