Delisa Tucker was just steps away from her son's memorial early Wednesday morning when she was fatally shot.

She had lost 14-year-old Kevin Tinker to gun violence the Sunday before, and friends said she was tending to his memorial when she was gunned down.

"While she was lighting candles for her son, her life was taken," wrote Michelle Tharpe, a family friend, on the GoFundMe page set up to help pay the family's funeral expenses.

They reported finding no one on the block who saw the shooting, and no one's been taken into custody for that attack or the one on her son.

On Sunday, her son was shot several times at the exact same location and pronounced dead on the scene, according to police.

Chicago police declined to comment on whether the shootings are connected, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

As of Nov. 8, there had been 3,105 incidents in 2021, an increase of 10% over 2020 and a 66% increase compared with 2019. »
