BRUNSWICK, Ga,. -- What happened in Brunswick left many looking for answers: Why did it happen? Why here?
Bryan Thompson is in his eighth year as mayor.
"Overall, we've seen the crime situation begin to fall slowly over the past few years," said Thompson.
He cites the biggest drop or decline has been in aggravated assaults.
"We've been able to make a dent in some of the statistics," said Thompson.
But two weeks ago, the city was challenged by the brutal killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. Residents began to question their safety.
"Brunswick is safe, Brunswick is safe," said Thompson.
It rocked the community when Santiago was shot and killed in his stroller.
"This should not have happened here, this does not happen here, but it did," said Thompson.
