Wide eyed, full of innocence, a sweet, six month-old girl now dead.
Jonylah Watkins was shot five times in Chicago while her dad changed her diaper in the family van. Her dad, Jonathan Watkins, was also hit - the target of gang violence that has plagued the Windy City.
Just last year more than 500 people were killed in Chicago. To put the crime rate into perspective - check out these statistics: In January of 2013, 42 people were killed in Chicago. In January of 2009, during the height of Al Capone's Gangland Era, there were 26 murders. Since 2001, there have been 2,187 American troops killed in Afghanistan. During that same period, more than 5,500 people have lost their lives on the streets of Chicago.
The latest funeral is now being planned for six-month-old Jonylah. Her dad is in the hospital and unable to help police identify the shooter. No one else is talking either, and that's an equally troubling problem for police. In 2011, there were 433 murders; 305 of them remain unsolved.
One man has made it his crusade to put an end to this violence.
Andrew Holmes was shot nearly 20 years ago. The bullet punctured a major artery in his leg. Following a lengthy recovery, he's become a well-known community advocate and rapid responder to violence.
Holmes goes door to door in the roughest neighborhoods handing out flyers, demanding justice and calling for change in Chicago. He is credited with rescuing more than 50 young victims of kidnapping and human trafficking and helped police make arrests in more than a dozen high-profile murder cases.
His latest mission: to get the killer of a six month old girl off the streets and into prison.
