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.
