NORTH CAROLINA—A North Carolina man, Darius Sessoms, 25 was charged with first-degree murder for the homicide of a 5-year-old boy who was shot in the head in his Wilson neighborhood on Sunday, August 9.
Cannon Blake Hinnant was riding his bike outside his father’s house when he was shot in the head. The boy’s two sisters saw the event happen.
Doris Lybrand, who allegedly witnessed the shooting, said she saw Sessoms running up to the boy, putting a gun in his head, firing, and running back to his house.
The Wilson Police Department arrived at around 5:30 p.m. to 5100 block in Archers Road and they located the 5-year-old with a gunshot wound. He was transported to Wilson Medical Center where he died due to his injuries.
#SayHisName trends on social media after mainstream media’s silence on the atrocious killing of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant. Not until outrage on SM, did CNN ever mention it.
Do we really live in a country where we glorify a fentanyl addled crackhead and burn down major cities because of his death, and this 5-year-old kid, shot in the head, gets no coverage on CNN, MSNBC et al?
Where is the outrage for Cannon Hinnant? Did his life matter?
