At least 29 people were wounded and three people — including a 16-year-old boy — were killed by gun violence during another bloody Chicago weekend.

Jamal Lockett, 16, was fatally shot in the chest Saturday afternoon in the city’s South Shore neighborhood. CBS Chicago reports that, according to police, Jamal was arguing with other young men about whether a bicycle had been stolen.

Community activist Andrew Holmes was handing out flyers near the crime scene, urging area residents to contact police if they have any information about the fatal shooting.

“These kids need to graduate instead of being buried,” Holmes told CBS. “They just need to graduate. So I carry this cap and gown to remind parents.”

    What are black and brown people doing about this epidemic?  The moment the police intervene there is drama. Hey if NYC can clean up the city so can Chicago. They need a Republican Mayor at the helms.
