Hundreds of people- including many Chicago high school students- took part in a gun control rally in The Loop Friday.Father Michael Pfleger and Chicago School Chief Arne Duncan were among those at the Thompson Center Plaza asking state legislators to pass stronger gun control laws.

Classmates of 17-year-old Kiyanna Salter from Percy Julian High School attended the rally in her memory. She was fatally shot on a CTA bus last week.

The girl is one of three Chicago Public Schools students who died violently this week.

Nine Chicago students have been killed this school year.
