Javonn Cannon and Jovonn Cannon Arrested In Shooting Death Of 5-Year-Old Dakari Weldon


24-year-old brothers, Javonn Cannon and Jovonn Cannon, have been arrested in connection to the shooting death of 5-year-old Dakari Weldon.

Dakari suffered a fatal gunshot wound on Monday afternoon at a home in the 2000 block of 60th Street.

The brothers dumped Dakari at the Froedtert South Hospital-Kenosha where he was pronounced dead.

One of the twins is the 5-year-old’s father.

The Cannon brothers later turned themselves in.



Officers said they would refer charges of homicide by negligent handling of a firearm against Javonn Cannon.

Charges of leaving a loaded firearm within reach or access of a child will be referred against Jovonn Cannon, investigators said.

Dakari’s grandfather, Curtis Cannon, believes the shooting was an accident but added that he does not believe the child shot himself.

He also said his sons were scared that’s why they dropped the child off and left.

Maybe they was scared to death. Maybe they took him to the hospital because they realized they f**ked up, and they didn’t want the boy to be in pain or suffer. I don’t raise killers.

This story is developing…I will continue to provide updates as they become available.
