Stray Bullet Kills 7 Year Old Boy Before Bedtime


A 7 year old boy was shot and killed in his home Sunday night before bed by a stray bullet.
According to Kentucky police Dequante Hobbs Jr was sitting at his kitchen table Sunday night eating a piece of cake and playing with his iPad before bed when he was struck in the back of the head by a stray bullet. Evidentially a fight broke out in a backyard near the boys home over a dice game and someone pulled out a gun and began shooting and that’s when the bullet went through the families kitchen window and struck the young boy. The mom and grandmother callled police and tried performing cpr until paramedics arrived and transported Hobbs Jr. to the hospital where he later died.
Louisville, Kentucky police are urging anyone to come forward if you have any information regarding this case.
