Aaron Shannon Jr., 5, was shot to death. The suspects are gang members. A grief counselor calls his death 'a turning point' because of community response.
They filed into church by the dozens — kids in patent-leather shoes, former gang members paralyzed by bullets, elderly women wearing their Sunday best on a Friday. They sat in tidy rows on simple chairs, their eyes fixed on a little white casket buffed to a shine and covered with carnations, fighting to find some sense, some purpose, in the death of a 5-year-old boy.
