GUN VIOLENCE RISING: The gun violence continues to rage in certain pockets across the U.S., including Chicago where Rashad Pratt was killed and at least 16 others wounded across the city between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Rashad Pratt was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds inside a SUV parked near the corner of 91st Street and South East End Avenue on the South Side of Chicago about 3 a.m. Sunday morning, the Chicago Tribune reports. Four teenagers are among the wounded.

Police Supt. Garry McCarthy is under pressure to do something about this growing gun violence. He announced at a recent press conference that a dozen reputed gang members were arrested.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rashad Pratt’s wife and family. How many more people have to die before something is done about the guns on the streets?
