Just a block away from Evanston Township High School a small legion of friends and family gathered to find new clues into the shooting death of 19-year-old Justin Murray November 29th.

“He was in front of his grandmother’s house with some of his friends and family,” said Murray’s mother Carolyn, who was front and center Saturday, handing out flyers.

Volunteers handed out hundreds of them, asking for tips to find Justin’s killer. Cook County Crime Stoppers is behind this push, offering up to a thousand dollar reward for information, “Cause you never know that little piece that puts the puzze together for the detectives,” said George Modade of the Crime Stoppers.

Though Evanston police have combed through several leads, the gunman who shot Justin remains on the loose. Carolyn, who’s worked for seven years to stop gun violence in Evanston, wants her son’s killer caught, “I’m hoping someone calls and gives a tip.  I’m hoping that someone ends this restlessness that i have not knowing and not having the crime solved… It’s one thing to bury my son, but i should not have to not know what happened to him. ”

    Our society has been dealing on how to suppress the massive increase of crime rates. This will definitely help the community. However we can never be too sure about everything, somehow we have to take some actions to defend ourselves and to protect our family. Our family has been using a security system that will help us protect our selves from any forms of crime. This is suitable to be used by the whole family as everyone can benefit it. This is a protection that you can take on your own hand. We don't always have to rely on the system. Sometimes we have to take action.
