"It makes me think I got to do more; we got to do more," said Common, who has a foundation that helps expose disadvantaged young people to the creative arts.

"We're not going to let an act of evil discourage us," T.T. Turner, pastor at Mount Sinai Baptist Church, said as he shot baskets with Cleo Miller, a 26-year-old with Michael Jordan "Jumpman" logo earrings.
"Those that did this will be caught," Turner said.
