“Again, our hearts are heavy. We lost yet another child to gun violence. Another family’s hearts are broken, and our community is torn further apart,” Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough said. “We as a community — black, white and brown — must come to the realization that enough is truly enough. Our children are wondering what is going on, and they are looking to adults for the answers. We can no longer accept this behavior. I’m asking the community as a whole to do your part to stop the violence, to end the heartache. We must choose to become our brothers’ keepers so we can stop being their pallbearers.”  

At this time, no further information is publicly available while the investigation continues.
