5-year-old Cannon Hinnant (GoFundMe)

Black man charged with shooting and killing 5-year-old white boy

Witness shocked: ‘People don’t run across the street and kill kids’

A Wilson, North Carolina, man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly approached a 5-year-old who was playing outside and shot the child in the head.

Darius Sessoms, 25, was apprehended and charged with first degree murder in connection with his alleged role in ending the life of the toddler, according to WRAL. The 25-year-old ran up to Cannon Hinnant, 5, and shot him in the head in front of his two sisters, aged 8 and 9, while they played outside of their home, witnesses told the local outlet.

“My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,” Doris Lybrand, who watched the shooting, told WRAL. “For a second, I thought, ‘That couldn’t happen.’ People don’t run across the street and kill kids.”

The 5-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to the outlet. Sessoms is reportedly Cannon’s neighbor and residents claim the accused man had dinner with the boy’s father on Saturday and was seen at the family home on Sunday, WRAL reported.

Police have yet to release a motive for the alleged killing, but insist the murder was not random, according to WRAL.

Is this a so-called ‘hate crime’?

Christina Prezioso, who said she is Cannon’s cousin, has organized a GoFundMe page that has amassed over $5,500 at the time of publishlication. Prezioso alleges the toddler was shot after he rode his bicycle into Sessoms’ yard.

“I am the cousin of Austin Hinnant, father of Cannon,” Prezioso wrote in the post. “Sunday, August 9, 2020, a sweet soul named Cannon Hinnant was taken from this world over a senseless act. A beautiful 5 year old baby boy riding his bicycle was shot by his neighbor point blank in Wilson, NC.”

“One minute he is enjoying his life, the next it all ends because he rode into his neighbors yard… 5 years old, guys!! Nothing prepares a parent for the loss of their child. No child should ever have their future stolen from them,” Prezioso wrote.

      The intermingling of Negroes with whites ain’t working. Even after you made one of these gaddamn basturds a so-called “President” for waycist appeasement.

      Even after making them billionaires and entertainment and sports heroes they still resent you.

      There is NO NEED to do anything for them anymore. Not after a 150 years after you freed them and now you gotta FEED them. Let them go on their own already. If they starve for lack of not working – let them starve.

      And if a Demoncrap wants to take your money to gibs to them. Arrest the Demoncrap and send him to go work on their farms. :twisted:
