Mourners came by the dozens to the Arc of Safety Christian Church, in Upper Marlboro Saturday, to honor the lives of 26-year-old NeShante Davis, and her 2-year-old daughter Chloe.

“Any way you look at it, it’s a tragedy,” said Isaiah Thomas, the minister of worship.

“We’re sorry to hear about the circumstances, but we’re in prayer for the family,” Lydia Thomas said, as she walked into the church with her daughter.

The young mother and the toddler were gunned down Feb. 2, outside their Ft. Washington, Md. condo.

Court documents said 25-year-old Daron Boswell-Johnson, Chloe’s father, confessed to the killings.

“He’s ruined his life and took away two other lives,” said Isaiah Thomas quietly.

The court papers also said Boswell-Johnson was angry over a court order to pay $600 a month in child support for Chloe.

Authorities said Boswell-Johnson confronted Davis, demanding she drop the petition for payment, before he pulled out a gun and opened fire.

Horrified family members inside heard the gunshots.

Officers responding to a call of ‘shots fired’, and found Davis’s body in a parking lot.

They discovered Chloe, badly wounded, in a car. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“It’s hard to understand why a father would do something like this,” Jerome Leonard, a Fort Washington resident who came in support of Davis’s family said.

On the funeral program was a photo of Davis and Chloe, sitting and smiling together.

The caption read, ‘together forever’.
