Shirley Chambers had four, happy children then in 1995, she began losing them, one by one.

First, it was her 18-year-old son Carlos. He was killed in the street after an argument with a friend.

Five years later, her only daughter, 15-year-old Latoya, was accidentally killed by a 13-year-old boy, who somehow got a hold of a gun.

He was apparently aiming for someone else.

A few months later, her 23-year-old son Jerome was gunned down in a drive by shooting.

For the past ten years, all she had left was Ronnie, her youngest. Then last weekend, the 33 year old was killed while sitting in his car.

The person who shot her last child is still on the loose.

Shirley is demanding stronger sentences for people convicted of gun violence.
