A nine-year-old Brampton boy shot to death while innocently sitting in his living room was laid to rest Saturday in a white child-sized coffin.

Kesean Williams was watching television with his 15-year-old brother Jan. 23 when he was shot in the head by a bullet that came through a window in his home around 10:30 p.m.

He died in hospital the next day.

Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral.

“It is heartbreaking,” family friend Sheila Anglin said outside Peoples Church in Hamilton. “It is very sad inside the church, it is very emotional. Kesean was always smiling and he was a nice kid who liked people and he was an energetic boy.”

Kesean and his family had recently moved from Hamilton to a house on Ardglen Dr. in Brampton’s Kennedy Rd. and Queen St. area.
