The death of Candice Rochelle Bobb, 33, and subsequently of her unborn son may well have been caused by a person who was angry because the driver of the car in which Bobb was a passenger made a U-turn in front of him. Call it U-turn rage. The shooting took place on Pittsboro Drive near Finch Ave. in the north west part of the City on May 15, 2016. Bobb was five months pregnant when she was hit by shots inside a vehicle. She and three others were driving home from a basketball game and were dropping off one of the passengers in the area of John Garland Boulevard and Jamestown Crescent when a suspect began shooting at their vehicle.
U-TURN A THREAT?
Her baby, who family members named Kyrie, was delivered via emergency C-section and was transported to an intensive care unit. He died on June 15, exactly one month after the shooting. Detective Sergeant Mike Carbone said prior to the shooting, the driver of the vehicle Bobb was travelling in made a U-turn in front of an apartment complex near Jamestown Crescent. “It may have been something the offender had seen that prompted them to start shooting at the vehicle,” Carbone said. “The U-turn in front of the Jamestown complex could have drawn the attention of the offender as being some type of threat to them.” Either that or angry-man syndrome.
