CHICAGO (AP) — Two women who worked with other moms to try to stop gun violence in Chicago were shot to death.
Chantell Grant and Andrea Stoudemire were part of Mothers Against Senseless Killings. Police say they were shot late Friday while on a corner in the South Side neighborhood of Englewood where members of the group often stood watch.
The 26-year-old Grant was a mother to three young children. The 35-year-old Stoudemire was a mother of two.
Police say they found both women down on the sidewalk after a blue SUV drove up and opened fire. A 58-year-old man suffered a graze wound.
Mothers Against Senseless Killings founder Tamar Manasseh called the women’s death’s “terrifying” and “heartbreaking.”
