Community Activist Andrew Holmes said doctors at Comer Children’s Hospital are trying what he called “various procedures” to save Chase, who is in critical condition.

Holmes appealed to the public to help police find the gunman.

“While the family’s inside the hospital, we need to go hard on the streets out here. We need to have any and everybody continue to call in. We need some solid information,” he said.

Police believe Chase’s mother was the intended target.

The reward for information leading to an arrest is now at $35,000.
