Blessed are the peacemakers

Via Prof P:

He was a rapper trying to stop violence in Baltimore. Tyriece Travon Watson, better known as Lor Scoota, had just finished hosting a charity basketball game. The fliers advertising the event had said, “Pray for peace in these streets.” Music artists and important faces from around the city had come together to prove they could get along.

but on the way home, he was shot: apparently a deliberate murder, not a random act of violence.
The question is why? Because he was a peacemaker? Or because he dissed someone? Or because someone was angry at him?
