A man reportedly came up to a young child who was innocently playing in a neighborhood, held a gun to his head and shot him.
Black Man Shoots White Boy
Darius N. Sessoms, 25, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder after he allegedly shot 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant on Sunday, WRAL reports.
The nightmare incident occurred in Wilson, Wisconsin in front of the boys two young sisters. Sessoms lived in a house right next to the victim’s father and ran across his lawn to the boy and shot him in the head at point-blank range.
Witnesses Reveal Horrifying Tale
His sisters, ages seven and eight witnessed the entire incident according to neighbors. 5-year-old Cannon was in his yard riding his bike when he was targeted.
A neighbor, Doris Labrant, witnessed the scene when the crazed man ran up to Cannon and fired the weapon into his head before he ran back to his house.
“My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,” she recalled. “For a second I thought, ‘That couldn’t happen.’ People don’t run across the street and kill kids.”
When the father saw the scene, Labrant knew how real the evil occurrence really was. The father was heard screaming and ran over to his bleeding son to hold him.
Little Boy Dead at the Hands of Evil Man
Cannon was taken immediately to a close medical center where he was pronounced dead.
The mainstream media has barely touched this incredibly horrifying story.
Seeing as how the shooter was black and the little boy was white probably has something to do with it. If it was the other way around and the skin colors were reversed, it would seem quite plausible that this story would get media attention for months and riots would break out in the name of “justice” for the boy.
Say his name. 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood while riding his bike. The accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters. Reverse the races and this is the only thing anyone talks about for a month pic.twitter.com/5V72YhAOlI

Christina Prezioso, a cousin of the family, created a GoFundMe page, writing, “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,” she wrote. “5 years old guys!! Nothing prepares a parent for the loss of their child. No child should ever have their future stolen from them. As of now the person involved is still hiding like the coward he is. Prayers that he is found soon and justice can begin. I am starting this GoFundMe to help with funeral expenses and any help along the way for both Cannons mother & father with permission. If you can help in any way please do.”
Sessoms fled the scene in a black vehicle and was ultimately taken in by U.S. Marshals Service Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force, Goldsboro police, and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
A Future Taken Too Soon
Little Cannon had the rest of his life ahead of him and was about to start Kindergarten next week.
While George Floyd, a man who was high on substantial amounts of illegal drugs and had a violent criminal past, received nationwide coverage and riots in his name, Cannon’s death has not even made national attention.
