Sean Davis “went by Layedback Jack and was very respected by the community," Scott, who is running for mayor, said in a statement Tuesday.
“The fact that his death comes just after he hosted a toy drive for children who lost a parent to gun violence is even more tragic,” Scott wrote. “Tonight’s shootings remind us that the horrific violence devastating our communities can affect us all.”
