Mayor Emanuel calls on Chicago families to help stop gun violence

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel is calling on families to help stop the spread of gun violence across the city.

"It is also the responsibility to create the fabric that brings a community together, because parents do not have a pass on the role that they have to play in raising their kids from knowing right from wrong," he said.

Emanuel spoke along with faith leaders at an anti-violence press conference at the People's Church of Harvest on the city's South Side.

Four people have been hurt in shootings across the city since Friday night.
