DAYTON, Ohio — Award winning musician John Legend visited Dayton on Sunday to discuss gun reform.
A week ago today, a mass shooter opened fire outside a bar killing nine people and injuring dozens of others.
Mayor Nan Whaley shared photos of Legend on Twitter and thanked him for coming to town.
The Springfield native also wrote about the experience.
“In light of last week’s events, it is more important than ever for us to come together to support our local communities,” he wrote.
