Two time boxing champion Gervonta Davis is preparing for a chance to win another world title this Saturday, but on Thursday he took a moment to make a huge gesture by offering to cover the funeral costs for a 21-year-old Baltimore woman, Destiny Harrison, who was fatally shot inside her own hair salon over the weekend.

“I’m just hearing about this sadness,” Davis, also a Baltimore native, tweeted on Thursday. “Prayers and love to her family. If I can do anything like pay for the funeral or anything like that..Reach out!”

Harrison was killed, according to reports, when someone walked inside her Madam D Beauty Bar and fired multiple shots in front of her 1-year-old, leaving her with gunshot wounds to the head. She died after being taken to a nearby hospital.

“It’s unbelievable that some evil soul would do something like this,” Harrison’s uncle, Dewine McQueen, told WMAR.
