It was a scare, followed by a sigh of relief and a reminder to hug their kids a little tighter.
Ifiok and Dawn Usanga were with their small children at a park back in 2015 when a 3-year-old boy was shot.
"If my son had been shot, I would be stark, raving crazy out here," Ifiok Usanga told 5 On Your Side in 2015.
They had a 3-year-old son of their own that day, which made them ask themselves what they would have done if the bullet had hit their son, Xavier.
The couple had no way of knowing that a little more than 4 years later, they would be forced to answer that question.
"He was just my little man… Always right there with me," Dawn Usanga said after her son was murdered.
