Watch This Mother's Tearful Plea Calling For an End to Gun Violence in Her Neighborhood

Since the beginning of the year, there have been more than 80 homicides in St. Louis. After the discovery of Ronald's body, a local reporter caught up with Shantay Fitzpatrick, who gave an emotional plea for the end of gun violence. “We can't keep living like this,” the mother of two said. “It's unsafe." She says it's unfair that her children and the other children in the neighborhood are unable to play in their neighborhood without having to "duck from bullets."
