Sixty one people were shot in the Windy City this holiday weekend and of those marked by gun violence, 11 died from their wounds.

More than a hundred people gathered at a vigil in Knoxville to honor 12-year-old Jajuan Latham. He was fatally shot in a suspected gang shooting. Jajuan is a cousin of 15-year-old Zaevion Dobson, who died shielding three girls from gunfire.

Chicago police are working on authenticating a video that depicts a shooting. It appears to show details that are consistent with a shooting they are investigating.

A 13-year-old anti-violence advocate was shot and wounded by a stray bullet. He's now recovering, after the bullet barely missed his spine.
