WILSON, N.C. (WRAL) -- Police said a Wilson man was taken into custody Monday night about 24 hours after he allegedly shot and killed a 5-year-old boy.
Darius N. Sessoms, 25, was apprehended in a Goldsboro residence by U.S. Marshals, Goldsboro police and Wayne County Sheriff's deputies. He was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond in the Wilson County Jail.
Family members said Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father's house when he was shot in the head. The boy's two sisters, ages 8 and 7, saw their brother get shot, according to Cannon's mother. Cannon was taken to Wilson Medical Center, where he died.
No details about a possible motive for the shooting have been released, but police said the shooting wasn't random.
Sessoms lives next door to Cannon's father, and a neighbor said that the two men had dinner together Saturday night and that Sessoms was at his neighbor's home earlier Sunday.
