Friends and relatives hug after coming out
Starkeshia Reed's household in March 2006. Fourteen year old Starkeshia Reed
was shot in her living room as she was preparing to go to school in the
Englewood neighborhood on Chicago's South Side. She was the first of two high
profile drive-by murders that killed children in the same neighborhood.
Shortly after Starkeshia died, ten year old, Siretha White was also killed in
her home while she was celebrating her 11th birthday.
