Maggio News

A striking vigil constructed in the suburbs is drawing attention to the victims of gun violence in Chicago.

Greg Zanis , of Aurora, built a cross for every person gunned down on the city’s streets this year. Each row represents a month in 2016 and each cross represents a homicide victim in Chicago. There are more than 750.

Each cross with a heart and many have a photograph of the victim.

Zanis has traveled all over the country after national tragedies like the movie theatre shooting in Colorado and the nightclub massacre in Orlando. He creates memorials for the victims.
