In a tragic incident in North Carolina, an 11-year-old boy has been taken into custody and is now facing charges in connection with the shooting death of an 8-year-old girl.
In a heart-wrenching statement, Fon Dockery, the father of 8-year-old Jenesis Dockery, expressed his anguish, describing the ordeal as a “horrible nightmare.”
On July 25, Jenesis was shot at her babysitter’s residence.
In a recent development, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office has taken a significant step by filing a petition with the North Carolina Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The petition seeks to bring charges against an 11-year-old individual who stands accused of committing the serious offences of larceny of a firearm and manslaughter.
According to reports, this young individual has been granted access to the aforementioned safe. In a recent statement, the user expressed their readiness to proceed. According to reports, it has been determined that either the safe was found to be open and accessible to him, or he possessed the combination to unlock it. According to attorney Harry Daniels, he expressed his opinion that the weapon in question is not secure.
In a recent development, a poignant 911 call has been made public, shedding light on the events surrounding the tragic incident involving an 11-year-old child. The call, made by the child’s mother, provides a firsthand account of the incident, offering crucial insights into the circumstances that unfolded.
In a distressing phone call, the mother can be heard expressing her shock and lack of awareness regarding her son’s actions. Unbeknownst to her, her son had brought a firearm from her father’s residence, leading to a tragic incident.
The gun accidentally fell out of a closet, resulting in a shot being fired and ultimately injuring the young girl under her care. Urgently seeking assistance, the mother urgently requests an ambulance to the scene.
Tragically, Jenesis passed away just two days after the incident.
Dockery, speaking solemnly, revealed that on the day they laid their daughter to rest, they made a powerful statement by donning orange trousers. The purpose behind this choice of attire was to raise awareness about the pressing issue of gun violence.
As parents, our desire for justice for our daughter is undeniable. In a heart-wrenching statement, the user expressed that what they were about to share is an unimaginable task that should never befall any parent.
The family is additionally seeking charges against the adults who allegedly granted the 11-year-old access to the firearm.
In a concerning development, it has come to our attention that those responsible for the supervision and control of these weapons are not currently facing any charges. This has left us feeling dissatisfied and raises questions about accountability. According to Daniels, this is something they are actively advocating for.
