Greg Zanis , of Aurora, built a cross for every person gunned down on the city's streets this year. Each row represents a month in 2016 and each cross represents a homicide victim in Chicago. There are more than 750.
Each cross with a heart and many have a photograph of the victim.
This time, he received a donation of wood and decided to mark the deaths of every Chicago homicide victim in 2016.
“This shows that we care. That's all,” he said.
The display is outside Aurora's Restoration Church.
The crosses will be brought to Chicago Saturday. Father Michael Pfleger will lead a walk from The Tribune Tower to the Water Tower with participants carrying the crosses down Michigan Ave.
