Columbus, Ohio-This is a club that no one thinks they will be a member of: mothers who lost their children to gun violence.
Marcus Payne’s mother felt the pain of life without a son after he died after he was shot in August last month.
“I have never stopped talking to him. Payne’s mother Victoria Landrum said that it has been a month since he left today, and I have not spoken to him for a month.
Payne is only 27 years old. He went to college and had a job selling cars.
On August 30, he and his younger brother were shot to death in the Victoria Village area. His brother told the police that when Marcus was shot, the two were confronting some people who tried to break into their car. He passed away about two weeks later.
The Columbus police has not released any suspect information.
“He is not the ordinary person in trouble you see in the news. He is not that kind of person,” Landrum said.
Payne’s family and friends commemorated the month of his death by hanging up flyers and asking neighbors what they saw. Neighbors told the organization that the police checked multiple ring doorbell cameras on the street, but found nothing.
10TV contacted the Columbus police for any updates, but received no response.
Payne’s death marked the 146th homicide in Columbus this year. There are currently 167 homicides.
