At least 14 people – including three children – were shot in a drive-by shooting Monday night at a busy corner in Chicago where people had gathered for a vigil, and investigators are trying to find the shooters. Two people traveling in a dark SUV opened fire on Halloween night at people on the corner of California Avenue and Polk Street around 9:30 p.m. before the vehicle was driven away, police said. More than 500 mass shootings have happened in the United States so far this year, according to the non-profit Gun Violence Archive. The count was at 574 as of Tuesday, an average of more than 1.8 mass shootings every day, says the group, which like CNN defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter.
Father, we come against the spirit of death that wants to destroy the lives of children. By the blood of Jesus Christ, let Your judgement be released upon every blood-thirsty demon that seeks to drink the blood of children and their families through gun violence, suicide, or unexplainable death, in Jesus Christ name (Jeremiah 21:12)
