The Rev. Al Sharpton made a trip to Chicago Sunday to speak about the devastating violence that has gripped the city.
Sharpton, a Baptist minister and civil rights activist, attended the 11 a.m. service at New Mount Pilgrim Church in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, where he was scheduled to preach a "special message" about violence.
By the time Sharpton made his speech, six people had been killed and another 24 had been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening.
