The mother of a 13-month-old boy who was fatally shot in his stroller during a botched robbery Thursday said one the of suspects threatened to kill her baby moments before the boy was fatally shot.

“He asked me for money and I said I didn’t have it,” Sherry West, the boy’s mom, told The Associated Press Friday from her apartment, which was scattered with her son’s toys and movies. “When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They’re expensive. And he kept asking and I just said `I don’t have it.’ And he said, `Do you want me to kill your baby?’ And I said, `No, don’t kill my baby!”‘

One of the teens allegedly fired four shots, grazing West’s ear and striking her in the leg, before he walked around to the stroller and shot the baby in the face.
