From a post by his circle of supporters on a Facebook page for Ward 8 in DC:  "We are deeply saddened by the senseless killing of our friend, neighbor and colleague Alexander Mosby.
Alex was a father of 3, husband and entrepreneur. His love for the community of Anacostia was without limit. We need to work together to end the violence in our community! We’re a village that can and will thrive together. "
