AceShowbiz - John Legend paid his respects to the victims of this month's mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio on Sunday (August 11).

As part of his visit, John toured the area devastated by the shooting incident with Mayor Nan Whaley, visiting shops and having dinner before playing an intimate gig at Blind Bob's Bar.

"Today, I visited the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio, and all stores are open for business," the singer wrote on Twitter about his visit. "In light of last week's events, it is more important than ever for us to come together to support our local communities."
