Six days and four arrests after the murder of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago, Chief Matt Doering says his community still has concerns.
He says they want to know, was Sherry West and her baby boy targeted by the two suspects, DeMarquise Elkins and Dominique Lang?
He says the answer is no. “We’re comfortable now, six days into it that the location of the incident and the victim were random,” Doering said.
Second, he says people want to know if the shooting was gang related. That’s still unclear.
“There are some, or is some, information that is somewhat gang related. But it does not yet lend itself to conclude that it is gang related activity, or motivated,” he said.
