CHICAGO (CBS) — Dozens of volunteers canvassed the Auburn Gresham neighborhood today, near where nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee was shot and killed Monday afternoon.
Debra Butler was among them. She lost her son Jeffrey to gun violence in 2011.
“I’m glad I’m strong enough to be here and help. My heart is heavy right now. This is my daughter’s friend’s son. They are the same age. They grew up together,” Butler said fighting back tears.
