Paintball: not like the real thing

In DeKalb County, in the US state of Georgia, a rapper has posted videos online, in which he encourages fellow members of the black community to arm themselves with paintballs and leave their real guns at home.

It went badly wrong. A three year-old boy – bizarrely named T’Rhigi – was killed by Christopher Cullins, who was fed up with being pelted by paintballs by a gang of youths. Cullins, 15, grabbed a real gun and shot back at them. T’Rhigi was killed in the crossfire.

The rapper has paid for the funeral.
