Three months after the infamous Trayvon Martin shooting, another unarmed black teenage has been killed by a man who falsely accused the teen of breaking into his home stealing guns.
Darius Simmons was taking out the trash when he was confronted by 75-year-old John Henry Spooner. His mother, Patricia Larry, saw the entire incident. Spooner reportedly confronted the teen as he took out the trash and asked if he had stolen some of his guns. The boy, who held his hands up, said he didn’t have anything. Spooner shot the teen. When Darius turned to run away, he was shot again in the back.
Spooner has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and his bond is set at $300,000.
