Family members of Amaria Jones, 13-year-old killed by gunfire last month, spoke Saturday afternoon about the gun violence in Chicago.
The community and family called on Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker to respond to the "gun violence epidemic" with the same effort as he's approached the COVID-19 pandemic.
The family held a press conference Saturday at 1 p.m. at 1007 N. Leclaire Ave.
According to authorities, a group of people were standing on the front porch of the residence at approximately 8:35 p.m. when a person fired shots at them. One of the bullets flew into the house, fatally hitting Jones, who was sitting in the living room at the time of the shooting.
The gunman then fled the scene in the silver vehicle shown in the photos.
Police believe the car is a silver Infiniti G35 or G37, with two doors and no front license plate. The vehicle also has tinted windows.
