Residents, activists, friends and family members of victims of gun violence march down Michigan Avenue on Dec. 31, 2016, carrying nearly 800 wooden crosses bearing the names of people murdered in Chicago in the year. Seven hundred and sixty two people were murdered in the city in 2016, police said, and more than 4,000 were shot — Chicago's most violent year in two decades.
