CHICAGO (WLS) -- A group of South Side moms looking to keep violence out of their neighborhood are looking for a new place to set up shop.

Mothers Against Senseless Killings, or MASK, has spent the past two summers grilling out at the corner of West 75th Street and South Stewart Avenue in Chicago's Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

But the owner of an apartment building at that location said residents are scared of the group. The owners even threatened to evict any tenant who joins the group.

MASK said it's looking for a new location.
