“Adonis Forbes had come (home) to check on the teenager, Murain Hawkins, who was babysitting Forbes’ children in the 2000 block of Tennessee Street. Police said Forbes was ‘working on his handgun’ when the firearm discharged, striking Hawkins.” According to nola.com, Forbes was trying to administer first aid to Hawkins when police arrived, but it was all for naught . . .
Hawkins died later at a Baton Rouge hospital and Forbes has been charged with negligent homicide. All because didn’t know enough not to “work on his handgun” while it was loaded. Or bother to ensure it was pointed in a safe direction.
Since his life doesn’t need any more complications right now, we’ll forward Forbes’ IGOTD trophy to what will likely be his future home in Angola. He’ll need something to spruce up that cell.
