The mother of a man, who allegedly murdered a five-year-old boy for the offense of riding a bike on his front yard, has received hundreds of messages of support, sympathy, and prayers on social media as strangers shared their emotions.
Carolyn Sessoms was flooded with a diverse mix of messages extending support and colorful condemnation on Facebook after her son, Darius, 25, was alleged to have shot five-year-old Cannon Hinnant in the head at point blank range as he played on the street with his sisters on a summer’s afternoon at a Wilson, North Carolina, neighborhood.
It was believed that Darius was on speaking terms with his alleged victim’s father as eyewitnesses claimed the two had dined together days before the brutal shooting.
