Cannon Hinnant Obituary, funeral arrangement, any GoFundMe page
The family are yet to make public the obituary and funeral arrangements.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Cannon’s family.
The page says,
I am the cousin of Austin Hinnant, father of Cannon. Sunday, August 9, 2020 a sweet soul named Cannon Hinnant was taken from this world over a senseless act. A beautiful 5 year old baby boy riding his bicycle was shot by his neighbor point blank in Wilson NC. One minute he is enjoying his life, the next it all ends because he rode into his neighbors yard.. 5 years old guys!! Nothing prepares a parent for the loss of their child. No child should ever have their future stolen from them. As of now the person involved is still hiding like the coward he is. Prayers that he is found soon and justice can begin. I am starting this GoFundMe to help with funeral expenses and any help along the way for both Cannons mother & father with permission. If you can help in any way please do. As a mother, I can’t wrap my head around what these precious parents are going through. Our family appreciates every prayer that you have sent. ❤#JusticeForCannon
