Charvonda Andrews is consoled Tuesday, July 30, in Chicago as she mourns two women killed July 26 while working as volunteers with a group called Mothers Against Senseless Killings. The gunfire on Friday night was instead meant for a man who is affiliated with a Chicago street gang and recently got out of prison, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. No arrests have been made. The deaths of year-old Chantell Grant and year-old Andrea Stoudemire in the Englewood neighborhood served as a grim reminder of the kind of violence that led them to Mothers Against Senseless Killings.
The anti-violence group launched five years ago following the shooting death of another young mother at the same corner. The drive-by shooting followed what has become a familiar pattern in Chicago, where more people are fatally shot than in any other city in the U. Though homicides have decreased in recent years and are on a pace to drop again this year, police statistics show there have been in as of July And during the weekend in which the two women died, 48 people were shot in the city, eight of them fatally.
A year-old woman was shot in the leg, back and face on June 25 by someone in a black vehicle in the same block where Grant and Stoudemire were gunned down, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The woman survived, and police said there is no indication that shooting was connected to the one that killed the two mothers. Grant and Stoudemire were found lying on the sidewalk after a spray of bullets came from inside a blue SUV, police said.
Manasseh said the women had been on the corner for hours Friday handing out food to other mothers and keeping watch over a vacant lot the group has turned into a play area for neighborhood children.
She said Grant and Stoudemire had finished up for the day and had begun walking to a store to get food for themselves and their children when they were shot. View the discussion thread. Search WTTW:. Thanks to our sponsors:. Chicago Police Department.
