The shooter was Mr Darius Sessoms a 25-year-old man, He shoot little Cannon Blake Hinnant at point-blank range shooting him on the head while the kid was in front of their yard playing with his two sisters and later the next day Wilson Police Department arrested Darius.
The boy was standing outside his father’s house when Mr Sessoms allegedly shot him.
According to local news broadcaster WRAL, Cannon’s seven and eight-year-old sisters saw his murder.
Cannon had just learned how to write his name and would have begun Kindergarten this year.
His mother told the Wilson Times that he was “just a loving kid” that had “the biggest heart.”
“It’s devastating. No one should ever have to bury their child. No mother should have to go through this,” she said.
Mr Sessoms lives next door to Cannon’s family and had previously eaten dinner with them, according to neighbours.
“[Mr Sessoms and I] used to play together and I never thought he’d kill someone,” Rachel Pipkin, one of Cannon’s mother’s cousins, told CBS News. “A mother now has to lay her son to rest at 5-years-old which she should never have to do. He’ll never be forgotten.”

Mr Seesoms fled the scene of the shooting by car but was later arrested at a home in nearby Goldsboro.
He was charged with first degree murder on Monday, and is being held without bond.
