That July 4 shooting on the South Side was all too common, according to Grooms, who lives in a city that faced nearly 800 murders in 2021. The same day, a gunman opened fire on an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, an affluent Chicago suburb, ultimately killing seven and injuring around 30, attracting nationwide attention.
The parade shooting prompted renewed calls for tighter gun-control from high-profile figures, including Vice President Kamala Harris and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
