CHICAGO — Hundreds of people marched on Saturday on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue carrying crosses representing murder victims in the city, CBS Chicago reports.

On the crosses were the names of nearly 800 people lost to street violence in 2016.

Those carrying them — some family members, others strangers — stretched for about a city block. The only sound was the reading of each name.
