Homicide detectives are busy in Chicago after a series of Memorial Day weekend shootings left at least ten dead and more than 40 injured:

(Mother) “We keep hearing about crime rate going down, but what about the murders? Every weekend there’s something going on.”

She and other mothers of previous murder victims gathered Monday, trying to stop the violence:

(Mother) “It’s very painful. I don’t just cry out for my son, I cry out for all the parents and all of our youth.”

A 13-year-old was among those killed, shot while eating pizza with his sister. The youngest victim was just seven, but she’s in good condition now after being shot while playing outside her home.
