Pregnant Mother and Child Murdered in Ambush-Style Shooting


Mother and child found deadBy: Lynnel H. Bott, Your Black World

A senseless, ambush-style shooting off of Highway 76 in the Cherryvale community of Sumter, South Carolina has left a woman and her unborn baby dead.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived after neighbors reported gunshots late Wednesday just before midnight. The front windows of a mobile home had been shattered by gunfire.

According to the Sumter County Sherriff’s office, four people were shot in the home around 11:30 p.m., including 18-year-old Kiana Moore. All the victims were transported to Tuomey Regional Medical Center where Ms. Moore and her unborn child died.

The three wounded in the shooting, included David Acoff, 20, Ebony Canty, 27, and her 2-year-old son. Canty was released from the hospital but Acoff and the 2-year-old are both listed in serious but stable condition after both undergoing surgery.

Deputies said that two other children under 3-years-of-age were also present the time of the shooting but were unharmed. One man was taken into custody at the scene, but charges related to the incident have yet to be filed.

It'll probably come back as drug-related, black men involved in these types of violent and self-destructive acts are weakening us as a people.

Very sad story indeed, but I think it's premature to blame "black men" and this being drug related.

Particularly when no other officials are making this big leap.
