Memorial honoring 7-year-old shot by stray bullet vandalized

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- The mother of 7-year-old Dequante Hobbs, Junior, is hurting once again after a memorial in his honor was vandalized.

Dequante Hobbs was killed by a stray bullet in May in the Russell neighborhood.

On Friday, the family arrived home to find vases smashed and a memorial to the child in ruins.

The family is asking volunteers to help them rebuild it on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. That'll be at DQ's house in the 2100 block of Madison Street.

Police have not arrested anyone for the boy's murder.
