At Least 6 Children Killed in Shootings Across the US
At least six children were killed in shootings across the country over the holiday weekend, sparking calls from officials to end the gun violence plaguing their communities.
The young boy had just finished second grade at Jonesboro Elementary School, a statement from Bessemer City Schools said.
McNeal’s mother heard the gunshots and saw her son duck to the ground, thinking he was trying to dodge the bullets, Ayala said.
“The public’s help is dire in bringing to justice the perpetrators of the horrendous killing of 11-year old Davon McNeal,” the mayor said in a tweet announcing the reward.
A group of children were playing in the yard in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood when three suspects exited a light-colored vehicle and fired shots at a group gathered outside a home on the 100 block of North Latrobe Ave, police said.
In another shooting in Chicago, a 14-year-old was among four killed on July 4.
“Senseless violence like this that could so tragically claim the life of a small child is unacceptable in our City, and the San Francisco Police Department stands with the Bayview Hunter’s Point community in its determination to bring the perpetrator or perpetrators to justice,” Chief of Police William Scott said in the release.
Children weren’t the only victims of gun violence, as shootings killed some and injured many others in several cities across the US over the holiday weekend.
