A man wanted for fatally shooting 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant at point blank range in Wilson, North Carolina has been arrested.
Officers responded to an incident at a mobile home park and found the child suffering from a gunshot wound. Hinnant was taken to Wilson Medical Center where he passed away.
Police said 25-year-old Darius Nathaniel Sessoms was later arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Sessoms is currently being held without bond.
Cannon’s mother said her son was playing outside when Sessoms ran up to the boy, put the gun to the child’s head, fired the weapon then ran off. Two children related to Cannon witnessed the shooting.
Cannon was set to start kindergarten this year.
