There are now fears of revenge attacks as Staggie was once a leader of the Hard Livings gang.

While some say he died the way he lived, others say he was a changed man.

Pastor Ivan Waldeck says Staggie hanged his life and became a reborn Christian.

“According to me, Rashied Staggie, as I walked with him for more than 20 years, after he changed his life and became a reborn Christian. I walked with him pastoring him. Talking at schools and motivational talks with kids telling them not to be involved with gangsterism and drugs. I don’t know that he has an enemy.”

Waldeck says Staggie and his wife had just returned from a holiday in Dubai on Wednesday.

Staggie will be buried next week.
