A group of Chicago ministers is calling for witnesses come forward and help police in the search for a gunman who shot and wounded six people outside a funeral last weekend.The ministers rallied and prayed outside the Gospel Truth Life Changing Ministries in Chicago's Austin community That's where a funeral was being held Saturday afternoon for an admitted gang member.

Police say the gunman hit his intended target but also shot at the crowd as he left the scene.

"We have to?and I want to reiterate this?we can not allow our community our parents our grandparents our cousins to harbor the people that are making where we live unsafe," said Bishop Jeff Davis, Gospel of Truth Life Change Ministry.

Authorities say they are reviewing footage from two police cameras in the area.
