Death of 3-Year-Old May Spark New Gun Rules

Seth Williams wants mandatory minimum sentences for illegal firearm possession.

Spurred by this month’s death of 3-year-old Tynirah Borum in a shootout, D.A. Seth Williams led a group of local officials this afternoon in calling for new rules requiring a mandatory minimum two-year prison sentence for illegal firearm possession.

A 22-year-old man was charged with murder, assault, and violation of the Uniform Firearms Act following that incident.

More to come as details emerge.
