Two mothers active in Chicago’s anti-gang movement were shot and killed during a weekend that saw 9 murders and 39 separate shootings across the nation’s third largest city.
“Two women who volunteered for an anti-violence group trying to stop gun violence in Chicago were among those shot to death in weekend violence,” reports Fox News. “Chantell Grant and Andrea Stoudemire were both mothers in addition to volunteers for the group ‘Mothers Against Senseless Killings’ that worked with other moms to thwart violence on the city’s South Side.
“Both were working as peacekeepers at a corner where members of the group often stood watch in the neighborhood of Englewood on Friday night when they were shot dead after someone opened fire from an SUV, according to police,” reports Fox.
Grant was a mother to three young children, Stoudemire a mother of two.
