Killa Kin & Mad Baby Shooter In Trouble With Feds!

A Jennings thug who was involved in the shooting of a toddler during a 2016 road rage incident is facing a new federal gun charge.
William Hampton, 20, appeared in U.S. District Court downtown last Tuesday. At a brief hearing, his public defender, Bev Beimdiek, had the nerve to asked for this menace to be released into his mother's custody. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Roy correctly opposed that. No ruling was made in the matter.
If you’ll recall, it was back in March that prosecutors dismissed assault and armed criminal action charges against William Hampton and his cousin, Jerry Hampton, 18, citing witness problems.
Jerry Hampton fired multiple gunshots at a car that was occupied by a 3-year-old boy and his father in June 2016. The shooting came after the Hamptons' car nearly hit the car containing the father and son, who were making a left turn onto North Grand from Highway 70.
The boy was critically injured but miraculously survived.
The Hamptons were later spotted passed out in the car after using drugs, with pistols in their laps. William Hampton's gun had an extended magazine loaded with 33 rounds. There was also a third pistol in the car. She said a gun was traced to the toddler's shooting.
After the state charges were dropped, a federal grand jury indicted William Hampton May 24 on a single felony charge of being a drug user in possession of a firearm.
William and Jerry Hampton were arrested last week after police received information that William Hampton was in a stolen car. After a high-speed chase that ended when police used spike strips, Hampton was caught with a stolen .40-caliber pistol and purses that had been stolen from the Forest Park area. He was with Jerry Hampton at the time.


Jerry Hampton had a pending warrant from a March 30 fentanyl possession charge at the time of the chase. City prosecutors also filed new charges of property damage and stealing accusing him of breaking into a car at the Muny and stealing a purse.
