A senseless murder of a child only about a year since the murder of another. Add in the non-fatal shootings of children for good measure…this city is full of cowards, period. From NBC Washington, where you can read more on the story:
An 11-year-old boy was fatally shot in Southeast D.C. Thursday night, police said, a little more than a year after another child was slain in D.C.
Karon Brown was shot near the intersection of Naylor Road and Alabama Avenue around 7 p.m., police said. The shooter remains on the loose.
“This was a child. There were other children in and around the area,” D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said. “Our communities have to stand up and speak up and make sure anyone who knows anything about this brazen homicide is brought to justice.”
