A march in Chicago took place Wednesday night with a message to stop the violence.

Among those taking part was the mother of 19-year-old Ashley Hardmon. The teenager was gunned down last month near her home in the Austin neighborhood.

Pastor Ira Acree announced a $3,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Ashley Hardmon's killer.

Relatives of other murder victims also marched Wednesday night in the Austin community.
