In Wilson, North Carolina Cannon Hinnant, who is five years old was riding his bike outside with his two sisters 8 and 7. That’s when Darius N. Sessoms, 25, went across the street pointed a gun to Cannon’s head, and executed him.
Police responded at 5:30 pm Sunday and there was a lot of chaos at the scene.
Officers reported that when they arrived they found a five year old boy suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. Police reported that they were unable to save the child’s life and he passed away.
According to WRAL Cannon’s father had just had dinner with Sessoms and was known well to the family.
Doris Lybrand, who saw the shooting was shocked.
“My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,” Lybrand said. “For a second, I thought, ‘That couldn’t happen.’ People don’t run across the street and kill kids.”
“You don’t expect to see somebody shoot someone,” she said.
After the shooting, Sessoms fled the scene but was apprehended in Goldsboro, NC by members of the US Marshals Carolinas Regional Fugitive task Force. He has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond in the Wilson County jail.
There were initial rumors that Sessoms shot the five-year-old boy because he accidentally rode on his lawn however, police said they do not have an official motive yet.
A five-year-old was executed in broad daylight and not a peep from the national news media. Could you imagine what would have happened if the races were reversed? There would be riots, looting, marches, and celebrities would be raising money for the family.
Race aside, as the left continues its campaign to defund the police who would get the justice for the other Cannon Hinnant’s of the world if there are no police? Are they going to send a social worker to apprehend Sessoms?
