October 3, 2018

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A youth football organization in Albany is mourning the death of a second coach to lose his life to gun violence in the past three months.

The Times Union of Albany reports Joseph Davis died Monday, two days after police say he was shot multiple times outside a nightclub where he had volunteered as a bouncer for a dance party.

The 42-year-old Davis was the head coach of the Albany Pop Warner Falcon football teams.

A 25-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder. Those charges are expected to be upgraded.

In early July, 26-year-old Elijah Cancer was shot and killed while trying to break up a fight at a party in Albany. He was a volunteer coach for the Pop Warner team.

No arrests have been reported in his death.
