What happened to Honesty Brehon?

Days after 1-month-old Honesty Brehon was shot and left critically injured, only a handful of people have come forward to say this very young Black life matters.

On Wednesday afternoon, Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone asked the community to match the energy behind the push for social and racial justice and put it behind the fight against gun violence.

Honesty’s grandmother, Arkeda Brehon, said her daughter, Jakireya, was holding the baby when someone walked by and opened fire.

“Just gotta pray. She (Honesty) is taking it one day at a time. Both were shot,” said Brehon. “She’s 1 month old and fighting for her life. Please help us get justice for Honesty.”

Honesty was born on July 25. On Tuesday, one month after her birth, Honesty, her mother, and three other people were shot outside the Brehon home in Norfolk.

Honesty’s pelvis was shattered, both femurs were hit and there’s damage to her reproductive system. The others who were shot are expected to survive.

Concerned neighbors circulate a flier with Crime Line number 1-888-LOCK-U-UP
Neighbors were circulating a flier in hopes of helping police find those responsible. They say the shooting was in a neighborhood where young people have easy access to weapons — and they don’t hesitate to use them.

Honesty Brehon GoFundMe

GoFundMe was created by the family of Honesty Brehon, it reads;

On the night of August 25th, my cousin and her one month old baby were shot on the 800 block of East Princess Anne Road. The shooting resulted in one month old Honesty sustaining life-threatening injuries resulting in her having surgery to repair damage done to her femur, pelvis, one of her ovaries, one of her fallopian tubes, and extensive damage to her rectum. In addition, her mother also sustained injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Baby Honesty has barely been on this earth for 30 days and is already a statistic of gun violence. This is what the world has come to. These funds from this campaign will be utilized to offset the medical costs that the mother and grandmother of Honesty will be left to take care of due to a senseless and disgusting act of violence.

If anyone has any information regarding this senseless and disgusting act of violence that will forever alter the life of baby Honesty, her mother, grandmother, siblings, and extended family, please contact the Norfolk Police Department immediately.
