This is absolutely terrible. Our condolences to Big G and his family. Senseless.

The D.C. community is rallying around a hometown celebrity who lost his son to gun violence over the weekend.

Kavon Glover was found dead in Prince George’s County on Saturday. He’s the son of Anwan “Big G” Glover, a go-go band leader who starred in HBO’s “The Wire.”

Investigators say Kavon’s body was found in the roadway in an unincorporated part of the county with an Upper Marlboro address. Police say they were called to the 12800 block of William Beanes Road around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday for a shooting.

The 29-year-old was dead on the scene. His father posted on Instagram: “Tomorrow isn’t promised. Love your people today.”
