WILSON, N.C. (WRAL) - A North Carolina man was in custody Monday night, about 24 hours after police said he shot and killed a 5-year-old boy.
Darius N. Sessoms, 25, of Wilson was apprehended in Goldsboro by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force, Goldsboro police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, according to our news partner WRAL in Raleigh. He was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond in the Wilson County jail.
Family members said Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father's house when he was shot in the head. The boy's two sisters, ages 8 and 7, saw their brother get shot, according to Cannon's mother.
Cannon was taken to Wilson Medical Center, where he died.
No details about a possible motive for the shooting have been released, but police said the shooting wasn't random.
Sessoms lives next door to Cannon's father, and a neighbor said that the two men had dinner together Saturday night and that Sessoms was at his neighbor's home earlier Sunday.
N.C. man wanted in fatal shooting of 5-year-old apprehended
So an innocent 5 year old child is executed in broad daylight in front of his siblings and several neighbors...and that's not newsworthy to CNN and MSNBC? Do liberals really only care about giant meth-head criminals such as George Floyd, yet don't care about an innocent white child murdered? Or the burglar in Georgia. Or the guy who tried to shoot a cop in Atlanta with his own weapon. On and on it goes. I'm sure that the only liberal commenters on this thread (if any reply at all) will now completely ignore this boy's death, and instead complain that I defamed the giant methbag in Minneapolis. Tough ****.
