NORTH CAROLINA – A five-year-old boy out riding his bicycle was shot and killed in cold blood at point blank range around 5:30 p.m. Sunday in Wilson, North Carlinea according to authorities. Police say that although EMS workers performed lifesaving efforts on the boy, Cannon Hinnant, later died at a Wilson Medical Center.

According to Cannon’s mother, the boy’s two sisters, ages 8 and 7, watched the incident take place. Doris Lybrand, a neighbor who also witnessed the shooting, said Sessoms ran up to Cannon, put the gun near his head and pulled the trigger before running back to his own house.
