‘My Baby Didn’t Deserve This’: Mother Shares Heartbreak After 5-Year-Old Fatally Shot in N.C.
A family is grieving for a 5-year-old boy who was shot to death in North Carolina.
Police say Cannon Hinnant didn’t die from a stray bullet or a neglected firearm.
They say a neighbor walked up to the child while he was playing outside with his siblings and shot him in the head.
“My baby didn’t deserve this,” said Cannon’s mother Bonny Waddell at a vigil on Friday. “He had the biggest smile, the biggest eyes.”
Waddell said she lost a piece of her heart last Sunday.
