Boxer Gervonta Davis is busy gearing up for his fight this weekend against Yuriorkis Gamboa, but his mind has been on the family of slain 21-year-old Destiny Harrison.

Harrison was fatally gunned down after someone walked into her beauty salon and opened fire.

After Davis heard about the tragedy, he took to Twitter to offer to help with anything the family needed, including funeral costs. He tweeted, “Smh! I’m just hearing about this sadness..Prayers and love to her family. If I can do anything like pay for the funeral or anything like that..Reach our!”

Moments later, Davis announced in his Instagram story that Harrison’s funeral was paid for. He shared a picture of Harrison with angel wings and said, “MAY YOU REST IN PEACE...FUNERAL PAID FOR.”

According to WMAR, “On December 10, Harrison filed charges against two people who lived near her salon, after she caught them in the back of her business stealing merchandise. In written testimony, Harrison accused one of the suspects of holding her down while the other one hit and stomped on her after she demanded her property back. The two suspects then allegedly fled with $3,000 worth of hair bundles “expensive hair extension” that Harrison sold at her salon. Harrison told a court commissioner she knew that one of the suspects had a violent background and was scared for herself and others in the salon.

”I’m scared for my life and business,” she wrote.

“The couple was charged with assault, theft and burglary. She also filed a peace order against the man. That was issued on December 19, ordering that he not have any contact with Harrison and stay away from her salon,” WMAR reports.

A candlelight vigil was held Thursday (Dec. 26) for Harrison. Attendees were asked to bring candles and pink and white balloons.

Police have not arrested anyone for her murder.
