Toddler Shot In Oakland Dies

(AllHipHop News) A one-year-old toddler who was shot in the head during a rap video died from his injury yesterday (December 9).

The child, Hiram Lawrence, was among the seven people shot on November 28, while people were gathered in front of a liquor store in West Oakland.

The boy was struck in the head, as his father, who was also shot in the arm, held him.

Young Hiram, who had been on life support for 11 days, was clinically brain dead since the shooting, which took place in front of State Market Liquors.

Police believe the shooting occurred as people gathered to shoot a rap video for Kafani, whose promotional van was riddled with bullets.

Kafani is the 1-year-old’s cousin and is not a suspect in the shooting.

Surveillance cameras caught the shooting on videotape and police are still seeking suspects.

      There is nothing wrong with bring toddlers to video shoots. Plus they said he wasn’t even in it. The father and lil man was just down there showing support away from the set when they started shooting. SHOULDN’T BE BRINGING DUMB ASS GUNS AND SHOOTOUTS TO VIDEO SHOOTS.

    I’m not going to say I understand what the father is going through just because I’m a father of 2 girls, because I don’t. Not going to say I can only imagine either because I can’t and don’t want to. This is sad and it probably was some fool to old to be out here still playing gun games. Just like when you have 25 year olds at high schools beating up and shooting at 16 year olds. WAKE UP PEOPLE BECAUSE YOUR TIME WILL COME AND IS COMING.
