WILSON, N.C. — A GoFundMe account for a North Carolina boy who was shot and killed by his neighbor has raised more than $600,00.
Cannon Hinnant, 5, was struck in the head at point-blank range on Aug. 9 while riding his bicycle with his siblings outside their home.
“They were just playing in the yard like any other day,” Austin Hinnant, Cannon’s father, told WRAL.
An investigation is underway.
The GoFundMe profile, which was created by Cannon’s grandmother, listed a goal of $5,000 to pay for funeral services. Within three days, more than $627,000 has been raised.
