Visitation tonight for 7-year-old killed by stray bullet

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A devastated family is preparing to bury their 7-year-old boy after he was killed while sitting at the kitchen table.

Dequante Hobbs Junior died May 21 after he was hit by a stray bullet as he sat at his kitchen table in his home on West Madison Street. Tonight loved ones are remembering him at a visitation from 6 to 8 at GC Williams Funeral Home on West Broadway.

Dequante's funeral will be Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Kingdom Fellowship Christian Life Center at 324 E. Broadway.

While the family tries to cope, community activist Christopher 2X is hoping the community will rally around them. He's asking for donations to help the family get out of their troubled neighborhood and move forward.

"At the end of the day, a child that's lost in such an innocent way deserves some compassion from the community," 2X said. 

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with expenses. Click here to donate
