Norfolk Man Acquitted Of Mass Shooting Case That Rested On A Single Identifying Witness



A man in Norfolk, Virginia was acquitted of all charges on Thursday after he was accused of shooting five people, Jane Harper reports for The Virginian-Pilot. The shooting took place in August 2020 at an apartment complex where gunfire injured 1-month-old Honesty Brehon, her mother and three other men.

The 1-month-old underwent emergency surgery and suffered a permanent injury to her organs. The baby’s uncle, Lavon Platt, was the only witness to identify the now-acquitted Kimahni Lankford as the gunman. Platt said he’d gone to the apartment complex to buy drugs that night. Platt admitted to a previous conviction of making false statements to police.
