After McNichols got off work from a Dayton factory Saturday, the two sat eating Twizzlers together before he headed out to the Oregon District with a cousin.
She got a phone call from a niece early Sunday telling her to get down to East Fifth Street.
McNichols attended Dunbar High School, Johnson said. His children, two girls and two boys, range in age from 2 to 8, she said.
"Everybody loved him. He was like a big kid," Johnson said. "When all of the movies come out – "Batman," "Black Panther" – he would get all his nephews and take them to the movies."
