Police in North Carolina have arrested a 25-year-old Wilson man, claiming he shot his 5-year-old neighbor in the head while the boy was playing outside with his sisters.
The Wilson Times, Laurinburg Exchange and WGHP all reported that the US Marshal’s Carolina Regional Task Force had arrested Darius Nathaniel Sessums on Monday, and charged him with murder in connection with the death of Canon Henant.
The shooting took place around 5:33 pm.
According to the police, Cannon was outside on his bike, along with his sister, who are 8 and 7. Authorities claim that Sissoms came out of his house and walked towards Cannon, pointing a gun at the boy’s head and pulling the trigger.
A neighbor told the police that he had dinner with Cannon’s father the night before the shooting.
A neighbor claimed that Sissoms had returned home after the fatal shooting, and believed the suspect was playing with the children.
The neighbor said, “For a second, I thought,“ It can’t happen. ”“ People don’t run across the street and kill children. ”
Sissom allegedly fled the area in a 2019 Toyota Corolla. Police found him on Monday night, inside a house in Goldsboro.
Cannon’s mother, Bonnie Waddell, told the Wilson Times that the boy was due to start kindergarten on Monday and had just learned how to write his name.
She said, “He was just a loving child.”
The motive of the shooting is still unknown.
The GoFundMe campaign is set up to help the Cannon family pay for his funeral.
Sessoms has not brought a case before a judge, and has no registered attorney who can comment on his behalf.

According to internet records, Devon Mallory, 31, is with a million dollar bond after his arrest this week.
WOIO and Cleveland.com reported that Mallory is accused of murdering the daughter of his girlfriend, Sophia Echevaria, who died late last month.
Sophia died on July 30, five days after the alleged attack.
According to the reports, which cited Mallory’s arrest report, the suspect was caring for Sophia on July 25 with two other children.
Sophia’s mother was at work at the time.
Police claimed Mallory called his girlfriend around 5 p.m. That evening, Sophia said that Sophia was unconscious and breathing abnormally. He also called 911, and the ambulance stopped at the house upon the arrival of Sophia’s mother.
Mallory allegedly told police that Sophia was playing with older children when she fell and hit her head with a Nerf pistol, according to reports. He said he was not in the room when the alleged accident happened.
However, Mallory’s story does not appear to match Sophia’s autopsy results.
The medical examiner ruled her death as a murder from severe head trauma.
According to reports, Sophia suffered from severe brain hemorrhage. Doctors determined her injuries were not accidental, and may have been the result of a brutal attack.
Police claimed Mallory was being rough with Sophia, disciplining her whenever she cried.
In February, Mallory also pleaded guilty to assault after being accused of pushing the mother of his 3-year-old son on a ladder, according to Cleveland.com. The woman who was climbing the stairs on crutches after a quarrel broke her wrist. Mallory was sentenced to a year in prison on probation in this case.
At this point, Mallory has yet to file an appeal for the only charge against him. Online records fail to determine whether he has retained legal counsel.

Police said a Florida elementary school student was on Zoom on her first day of school when she shot and killed her mother during class online.
The shooting occurred at a house in Indiantown, about 30 miles southwest of Port St. Lucie, just after 8 a.m. The suspect, Donald J. Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said other offenses were criminal.
Six children were at home at the time of the shooting, including a 10-year-old girl who was attending an online class at Warfield Elementary School. Many schools across the country have chosen online lessons due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Snyder told a news conference that the girl’s teacher had seen the child reacting to the shooting.
Online tutor – I haven’t zoomed in with the kids, so I imagine there are other kids – and the teacher can see the kids. The teacher said that she heard a noise and heard bad words. “I realized there was some kind of local quarrel. He could still see the child connected to the Internet.

Grief counselors will be available to students and staff who need them.
“The incident is still under active investigation by law enforcement authorities, and we will continue to respect the privacy of the teacher and our students,” the district said.
police said investigators believed there was a rift between Williams and the girl’s mother, Maribel Rosado Morales. The husband was previously dated.
police said, “He came in and confronted her with something related to a video clip.” “And then we learned later that there was a conversation about Facebook. He said she was already smiling at him and getting angry and he shot her.”
police said Rosado Morales, 32, was hit by several bullets and died in hospital. None of the children – four of them children of Rosado Morales and two of his cousins - were injured. They ranged in age from 10 to 17 and none of the children were related to Williams.
police said that he believed most of the children witnessed the shooting.
After the accident, Williams ran away from the house but was later arrested after the bus driver suspected and called 911. Sheriff said that Williams was trying to go somewhere the bus had not traveled.
Snyder said that a pistol was found in a bag on the bus and that Williams, 27, “made a full confession.” It is not clear if he has obtained a lawyer.
police said that the officers were at home last year due to previous incidents of domestic violence, but based on their records it did not appear to be a “persistent problem.

Darius Sissums, 25, was arrested by Wilson Police Department on Monday after he boarded Cannon Hinant, 5, and shot him in the head.
The boy was standing outside his father’s house when Mr. Sissoms shot him.
According to local news radio WRAL, Cannon’s seven and eight-year-old sisters witnessed his murder.
Cannon had just learned how to write his name and would be starting kindergarten this year.
His mother told the Wilson Times that he was “just a loving child” with a “big heart.”
“It’s devastating. Nobody should ever bury their child. No mother should go through this,” she said.
Mr. Sissums lives next door to the Cannon family and had previously had dinner with them, according to the neighbors.
“[Mr. Sissoms and I] used to play together and I never thought he would kill someone,” Rachel Pipkin, one of Cannon’s mother’s cousins, told CBS News. “A mother now has to put her son to rest at the age of five which she should never do. He will never be forgotten.”

A homeless man who was staying in a hotel in South Florida as part of an effort to stop the spread of the Coronavirus has been charged with stabbing another guest in the throat.
Recently released documents show that Charles Morgan, from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, has walked into the Rodeway Hotel & Suites in Dania Beach.
While there, investigators said, Morgan met with Alfonso Washington, who had been staying at the hotel for two months as part of Fort Lauderdale officials’ efforts to house the homeless.
Morgan checked in at around 9 pm. Early the next morning, the front desk clerk asked about the check-cashing shop, the arrest reports said. When he got back to the hotel he had breakfast and then left in a taxi to go to Walmart.
Later that morning, the report said, Morgan returned to Room 3104. Investigators also said that Washington was seen tracking Morgan that morning.
After 10 am, Washington got into an argument with Morgan, who was sitting outside his room in a chair, according to the report.
The surveillance video from the hotel was skipped at that point, but the police believe the men entered the room together. At 10:13 a.m. Washington is seen leaving the room, sitting in a chair outside, and then wandering around until about 11 a.m.
At that time, a housekeeper passed by and heard an altercation between two men. The newspaper told investigators that it recognized Washington’s voice through previous interactions with it, the newspaper reported.
The video shows Washington leaving the room at around 12:30 PM. He was carrying a bag.
Morgan was found in a hotel room bathroom later that day. The arrest report said that his throat had been crushed so badly that a person had to be “tapped”.
A Washington roommate told investigators that Washington washed his clothes in the laundromat before leaving with an iPad he had never seen before. The police searched the room and found a white face mask with “Martha’s Vineyard” printed on it.
When Washington returned to the hotel, he agreed to go to the police headquarters to speak. He denied killing Morgan. The arrest report did not mention the motive for the killing.
Washington is accused of murder. The prison records do not mention his lawyer.
Court records show Washington has a long criminal history, including her conviction for the murder of a woman in Homestead in 1985. The South Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper reported that due to bad weather in the area.
