5 Year Old Kid Killed While In Car By Drive By Shooter
Two brothers seat in the back seat while their parents drive them home. They giggle and play, teasing each other, both looking forward to getting home so they can battle each other on the PS4. It’s been another boring trip to the store, and they are ready to release some of that stress on one of their video games. Just another average day. A car pulls up beside them, a window rolls down, and a man leans out. Before anyone can realize what is happening, the man opens fire, putting twelve rounds in the back seat. The car speeds off, tires screeching. One of the brothers is only grazed, the brunt force of the barrage taken by his brother, who lays limp, bloody, and dead.
Welcome to America
As reported earlier by CBS News, two brothers were murdered in the back seat of their car by a drive by shooter. No motive was given, and the killer is still at large. The brother that was killed was 5 years old; the survivor is 7. No comments have been taken from the parents. The news is extremely discouraging. Who could open fire on two little boys? What reason would they have to target them? Was it some kind of sick gang initiation? Quite possible. Gangs often require that their initiates commit extreme acts of barbarism in order to prove their loyalty. Bystanders report hearing at least twelve gun shots. This killer wanted to make sure that these boys died. The killer only got it half right, but one dead child is more than enough to send fear through a community. These gang bangers want to let the people know they are in charge, and if anyone crosses them, they have no problem murdering their children.
