Man Faces 30-Year Prison Term After Murdering 12-Year-Old With AK-47
An aint-isht South Carolinaman who was found guilty of murdering a 12-year-old trick-or-treater after mistaking him for a rival gang member will spend the next 30 years of his life in prison paying for his senseless crime.
A drug dealer has been jailed for 30 years for shooting dead a 12-year-old trick or treater who had knocked at the felon’s door on Halloween.
Quentin Patrick, 27, shot young TJ Darrisaw at least a dozen times with an AK-47 assault rifle after the schoolboy approached his home hoping to be given a traditional gift of candy.
The paranoid crack dealer attacked the boy, who was accompanied by his step-father and two brothers, believing he was a rival drug dealer coming to kill him over a drugs feud.
Local reports said Partick’s girlfriend was ‘freaked out’ when she saw a crowd wearing masks outside their house in Sumter, South Carolina, and alerted the gunman to their presence.
Fearing he was about to be killed, Patrick unloaded 30 bullets into the family, killing TJ, hitting his parent and one brother and missing his other sibling.
While the others survived their wounds injuries, TJ died in hospital.
So horrible that this child’s life had to end over pure ridiculousness that had nothing at all to do with him. Hopefully this family can find at least some peace in knowing that a small slice of justice was served.
