Maurice Hobbs, an aspiring rapper, was walking down the road with a friend one day in Jan. 2017. He was a junior in high school and a musician on the rise in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. A dark-colored car pulled up and shot him in the chest and his friend in the leg. Hobbs died at the scene, and in the wake of gun violence, an entire family has been torn apart and is trying to put together the pieces. Latasha Hobbs has joined in the investigation of her son’s murder to find answers in a city that is one of the top homicide hot spots in the United States.
