Cannon Hinnant not mentioned on major networks. Why?

I know that he was mentioned a few times on CNN. Don’t know about other places.
A child in my hometown (New Orleans) was shot and killed a couple of weeks ago. A little mention locally for a day or so, then “crickets.”
Unfortunately children are increasingly being killed. Occasionally targeted, but often just in the wrong place. Sometimes inside watching TV or in bed.
I would hope that this thing with Cannon Hinnant stops being a racial issue and helps focus on children increasingly being the victims of violence.
