(ABC 6 News) - 28-year-old JR Banks was shot and killed in downtown Rochester early Sunday morning. 

The two suspects, in this case, Derrick Days, 28, of Saint Paul, are facing second-degree murder charges, and 22-year-old Nautica Cox is charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support JR Banks' family, who leaves behind his partner-in-life and best friend Katie and her daughter Eloise.

Organizers wrote in the post: 

 "JR leaves a legacy of love, he turned strangers into friends and friends into family. Even in the smallest of moments, JR had a bigger impact on people's lives than he would ever know. I'm sure he's watching over everyone now from his higher perch.

JR would probably say all this better by simply saying “Help My Smalls and Extra Smalls out for me…Would Ya?”
