Cardinal Ritter College Students march against gun violence | Headline News St. Louis


NS. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – High school students from Cardinal Ritter College Prep led a march against gun violence on Wednesday.

The march was organized in direct response to the death of 19-year-old Isis Mahr. She was a standout at the Cardinals Ritter College Preparatory School.

Police say two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 19-year-old man last month.

Mahr was killed in October in a four-person shooting while releasing a friend. She has a dream to become a nurse.

Urban League expected at least 600 students to join the march. They are calling on the authorities of high schools, students or anyone affected by gun violence in the metro area to march against gun violence.

There’s been some progress when it comes to deadly shootings in St. Louis. At this point, the city’s 176 homicides as of November are down 28% from last year. The city is on track to have the fewest homicides since 2018.

Overall, shootings are down. Serious gun attacks are also down 21% from 2020 and the smallest number since 2018.
