BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Newly released surveillance video shows a brazen homicide in east Baltimore. 

A passenger with a gun gets out of a silver 2-door Honda Accord in the middle of crowded East 25th Street. He shoots 33-year-old Sean Davis in the head and torso, then gets back in the waiting car, which drives off.

Davis later died at a hospital. He was known to many as “LayedBack Jack” and had more than 70 thousand Instagram followers. He often spoke about giving back and trying to help those in need.

 

This happened the week before Christmas — on December 17th — when Davis was organizing a toy drive for children who lost their fathers to violence.

Davis was known for helping people in his community. For several years, he ran Opus Auto. He was gunned down outside that business. A memorial of candles and tributes with his name still sits outside the padlocked gate.
