Six Chicago children have been killed just in the last week to gun violence and perhaps no one can relate to the pain of losing a child better than mothers who’ve been there.
On South Michigan Avenue near 116th Street, Diane Latiker set up a shrine in memory of Chicago children killed by gunfire.
“It’s like it takes a piece of your soul because whoever is on that stone, somebody loved them,” said Latiker.
Neighbors grieved outside the home of 10-year-old Lena Nunez Saturday night. The little girl was in her family’s apartment in the 3500 block of West Dickens when a stray bullet shattered the window, hitting her in the head.
