Ottawa Councillor Mathieu Fleury is calling for a ban on handguns.

Fleury put out the call on Twitter Sunday night after he attended a vigil for Markland Campbell.

Campbell, a hip-hop artist, was a member of HalfSizeGiants and was gunned down in the ByWard Market Friday night. Friends say he died protecting his daughter.

An 18-year-old man appeared in court Sunday and was charged with second-degree murder.

Friends & family vigil in #BywardMarket in memory of Markland Anthony Campbell, aka Jahiant Jahh, a member of HalfSizeGiants music, a dad, and employee of @Shaw_Centre.

I call, on behalf of my community, for a ban on handguns.#EndViolence
