Wilson, North Carolina – Darius Sessoms, 25, was arrested Wednesday for the murder of his 5-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant.
Hinnat is reported to have been playing in his yard Sunday when Sessoms walked up to him and shot him point-blank in the head. Hinnant was rushed to the hospital where he later died.
Sessoms then went on the run and the U.S. Marshals’ Carolina Regional Fugitive Task Force was used to track him down. He was found in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Sessoms is charged with first-degree murder and is being held with no bond.
A GoFundMe page has been established to help Hinnant’s funeral cost.
