He was friends with Linkin' Bridge member China Lacy. Lacy said he feels the loss deeply because he and David were both young men working hard to get ahead and make their neighborhood better.

Lacy shared his grief and anger in a series of Facebook posts. 

In one of them he asked the question, "Why do we continue and act stupid and kill each other when we know what we come from and what we have went through?"

"It hit home. This particular situation hit home," Lacy told us. "It's like we're all trying to do something positive, trying to be the lighthouse in the community and those lighthouses are being extinguished."
