A six-year-old Black boy in Kansas was fatally shot in broad daylight last week while playing in the front yard of a home.

Kansas City police officers found Sir'Antonio Brown, 6, wounded in a front yard after one or more gunmen shot at him, per KCTV. Following the shooting, Brown was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to police, more than 30 shell casings were found at the scene. It's unclear whether there was more than one shooter or if the intended target was the boy or an adult he was with.

Police Maj. Violeta Magee told reporters that the attack doesn't appear to have been a "random act."

"Somebody knows who did this," Police Deputy Chief George Sims told KCTV. "Do not retaliate. Do not confront them. Do not shelter them. Call TIPS. Call the police department, so that we can follow up and bring this investigation to a quick conclusion and bring these shooters to justice."

Hours before the fatal shooting, Sir was in his kindergarten class at West Park Elementary School, according to reports. His teacher, Amanda Mynatt, said he was "a jokester but also really smart."

Sir's godmother, Shyneisha Hill, created a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for funeral expenses.

"Sir was my godson," Hill told KCTV. "I just want the people that did this brought to justice. Sir deserves justice. No 6-year-old deserves that. No child deserves that. No parent deserves what my cousin is going through."
