A 4-year-old boy was out playing in his neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio at around noon on March 24.
A car came speeding around the corner and struck the boy. The boy’s father, Jamal Killings said he tried to get the vehicle to slow down, but it swerved around him and hit the little boy.
The car was going about 45 mph in a residential area.
Killing’s son was on the curb when he was struck. The driver of the car Jamie Urton, 44, and witnesses got into an altercation after the boy was hit.
Witness to the accident reportedly attacked Urton and his passenger.
They were dragged out of the car! Urton was shot several times and later died!
The four-year-old that was hit was taken to the hospital and released the same day with bleeding on his brain.
There have been no arrests for the death of Urton. Police are conducting an investigation.
It is not clear at this time if he was shot before he hit the young boy or after. Maybe he was driving fast because he was trying to get help.
If he was shot and killed at the scene, that is a frightening reality.
It is bad enough that the witnesses dragged Urton and his passenger out of the car – but to shoot him?
What is the world coming to?
Killings released a statement to Urton’s family expressing his sorrow for their loss. Violence is not the answer.
Teach your children to solve their problems without resorting to violence.
