He approaches a 5-year-old boy who was playing on his bike and shoots him in the head
The facts took place Sunday at the end of the day in Wilson, North Carolina.
At around 5:30 p.m., a 5 year old child was playing in front of his house on his bicycle with his sisters, aged 7 and 8.
Suddenly a man walked up to him, pointed a gun at his head and pulled the trigger. Hit by a bullet in the head, the little Cannon died instantly.
Upon seeing the individual, “my first reaction was: he is playing with the children” said a neighbor.
“For a second, I thought to myself that it couldn’t happen, that it couldn’t be possible. People don’t run in the streets to kill children.” he added.
His killer then fled by getting into a 2019 Toyota Corolla. Darius Sessoms, 25, was arrested the next day at a house in Goldsboro.
We do not yet know the reasons for this crime. Sessoms lived close to the victim’s family. Neighbors say he had dinner with the little boy’s father on Friday and had come home earlier on Sunday.
