Keon Lincoln’s mother says she heard gunfire that killed him


The mother of a teenage boy who died after an attack by a group of youths says she heard the gunfire which killed him.

Keon Lincoln was shot and stabbed during the attack on Thursday afternoon in the Handsworth area of Birmingham and died later in hospital.

His mother Sharmaine Lincoln appealed to the local community to help her understand what had happened, saying it made no sense that anyone would want to take her son’s life in such a brutal way.
