CHICAGO -- The daughter of a Cook County Sheriff's court deputy is the latest victim of Chicago's deadly gun violence.

The woman who was killed has been identified as Tiara M. Parks, 23. She was shot in the head. Two other people who were with her were wounded.

Today, friends and family are remembering Parks at a memorial set up near where she was shot.

The shooting happened right next to Haley Elementary Academy around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Police blocked off a portion of the street and placed evidence markers at the scene.

Authorities say Parks and two other people were exiting a vehicle at 114th and South Stewart Avenue when someone opened fire.

Before the shooting, authorities say, about 20 people were on the block, hanging out.

The victims were driven to Roseland Community Hospital, where their car crashed.

Parks was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The other victims: a 24-year-old man was shot in the lower back and a 27-year-old man who was shot in the left leg.

Both men’s conditions stabilized at the hospital.

Today, community activist Andrew Holmes distributed flyers to Roseland residents. He told WGN the death of this young woman reminded him of his own daughter's passing. She was also a victim of gun violence.

Holmes hopes that surveillance video at the school can help in the case.

WGN spoke to Parks's father, who says he is demanding city leaders, the media, everyone invest in neighborhoods on the South and West sides -- where violence is rampant -- so that kids have options.
