Just five days ago, Kaylynn attended the funeral for her son, Kyler Jackson, who died after an accidental shooting involving a 9-year-old relative on May 1. The young boy passed away three days after the incident.
Councilman Pastor Canneth Lee, who served as lead pastor at Kyler’s funeral, is now trying to help the Davidson family through their immeasurable grief once more.
“When you get that call when a loved one is dead, or that a loved one is at the hospital, that a tragedy has happened, it is a lot of emotion,” he said to WNDU.
He added: “They have had three tragedies: Kyler, the nephew (who accidentally shot him) and now Kyler’s mom.”

Lee also urged the community of South Bend to come together to prevent such things happening again in the future.
“If we can’t live for our children and raise our children, then what else do we have?” he said.
As per ABC, a woman named Kimarie Wright has been charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter in the wake of the shooting that claimed Kaylynn Davidson’s life.
Surveillance footage reportedly showed Davidson entering a restaurant in South Bend on Tuesday, May 17, and hitting Wright. The two women then fought before others got involved and broke them apart.

Wright, though, pulled out a handgun, firing it at Davidson and other restaurant-goers after they had fled the building.
She is currently being held without bond.
Such mindless violence is enough to leave anyone questioning their faith in today’s society. I agree with Pastor Lee: we should all be looking for ways to coexist more peacefully together.
Rest in peace to Kaylynn and her son. Share this article to send thoughts and prayers to the Davidson family.
