BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The killing of one-year-old Antonio Santiago has left some in the small coastal community of Brunswick afraid to even go outside.
What's perhaps even more chilling is that the two suspects in the case are teenagers.
The case is bringing some unwanted attention to crimes involving young people in that community.
"We're in spring and like anybody else, I think most people would agree, the more kids are out of school with less supervision we have more minor issues," said Chief Matt Doering, Glynn County Police Department.
In 2012, the Glynn County Police Department received 58,423 police activity calls. Of those calls, 495 were related to a juvenile. The report does not go in to detail about the nature of the call.
According to Stormy Adkins with Greater Dimensions Christian Fellowship, teen crime in Brunswick is a problem.
"I feel that they do have a juvenile crime problem I also feel that there are solutions that need to be implemented," said Stormy Adkins, Co-Pastor at Greater Dimensions Christian Fellowship.
Adkins considers her church to be part of the solution. They run a program called "Teens of Dreams," which focuses on encouraging young people achieve their goals.
"They can do it and they can make it if you have the proper structure," said Adkins.
One of the suspects in the case, De'Marquise Elkins, 17, used to attend Greater Dimensions Christian Fellowship. Adkins says the church and community failed to guide him toward a life outside of crime.
Adkins says helping troubled teens is a community effort and more still needs done.
"If the state of Georgia can give someone a parole officer they could also assign a pastor to mentor them. There is a spiritual component that is missing," said Adkins.
The church also runs an ex-offender car wash to give teens with a troubled past a second chance.
This Saturday Greater Dimensions Christian Fellowship will hold an Easter festival for teens. They plan on having "huddles" for anyone who wants to discuss baby Antonio's death.
