As the nation turns their eyes towards devastating mass-shootings in El Paso and Dayton last weekend, an even bigger "massacre" will garner only a fraction of the news headlines.
Over the weekend Illinois gang violence left 52 people wounded and 7 people dead, once again making Chicago the gun violence capital of the United States.
Shootings across the city of Chicago this past weekend have left seven people dead and another 52 people wounded.
One of the most recent shootings occurred in the city's Englewood neighborhood.
Cornelius Jordan, 21, was driving along 6900-block of South Wentworth Avenue around 10 p.m. Sunday when someone in a sliver sedan pulled up to his vehicle, shooting both him and his 20-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Chicago police said.
Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the left arm, police said.
Jordan was not only a son, a brother and the father of a little boy, he was everything to the people that are grieving his loss.
"Yesterday when he left my house I told him, 'be careful.' He told me 'Ma, I'll be back.' Those were the last words I had with my son," said Wanda Jordan, Cornelius' mother.
