2 Chicago Mothers Who Fought Against Gun Violence Shot Dead

HeadlineJul 31, 2019

In Chicago, anti-violence activists from the group Mothers Against Senseless Killings are searching for answers after two mothers, both members of their group, were killed in a drive-by shooting Friday night. Twenty-six-year-old Chantell Grant and 36-year-old Andrea Stoudemire were shot on the street in the very spot where volunteers from Mothers Against Senseless Killings regularly gathered with their children to play and advocate for a safer community. A member of the community group called the street a “sacred ground” and a “haven that was built by moms.” An investigation is ongoing. Two men were injured in the shooting, and police say one of them may have been the intended target.
