BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- On Thursday night, a makeshift memorial was set up where 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was murdered.

On Friday night, it has grown bigger, his senseless killing leaving a huge hold in the community.

At the street corner at the makeshift memorial strangers clasp hands and hold a spontaneous vigil for a little boy they never met.

"It's almost insufferable. You don't know how to put it in words, your heart feels heavy," Herrington said.

Herrington, an elementary school teacher, said the tragedy has rocked this community, young and old.

Herrington said on Friday, a fourth grader asked her why kids are being targeted.

"The children feel this. This went heavy even on children. It's sad because the kids they don't know what to do. They just know something has happened and we just try to throw our loving arms around them," she said.

The murder of 13 month old Antonio Santiago brought Reggie Dancy to his knees.

"Let us be a wake up call. This is nonsense going on in this town. Children taking children. It shouldn't get that bad. It shouldn't get that bad. Oh my God," he said.

He felt compelled to come here and pray.

"Things got to change, it's got to change. Let this be a wake up call," Dancy said.

"People don't love have for one another anymore but it's bad to just see this young baby here didn't get the chance to live out his life," said Brunswick pastor Joe Herrington. "But we do know this here that god just took him back and he is up on his wings."
