The big story is the investigation into the violent death of a young man who used his lyrics to spread a message of peace. Tonight, he’s being remembered by his family, his community and his fellow musicians.

That victim was shot multiple times, right in front of his home. Police scooped him and rushed him to Penn Presbyterian Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

And today, homicide detectives are still working to figure out who is responsible. Beall all in my city. Can’t get enough of it.

One of his friends said,

He was a good dude, you know, all yesterday we all together yesterday praying at the masjid all day. He doing his good deeds, trying to feed the homeless.

10 p.m. Sunday, right in front of his Brewerytown home in the 1200 block of North Taney Street. Gantt was shot to death.

At least a dozen shots were fired. His mother was inside. Today, out front, his friends and family surrounded his imam.
