Gun Violence Continues To Plague Chicago

As many of us are still reeling from the tragic killing of Alton Sterling, the Twitterverse has been buzzing with outrage and calls to action.

Tuesday night, the father of five was gunned down after being confronted by a Louisiana police officer for allegedly selling CDs in front of a local mini-mart. Sterling, 37, was shot multiple times in the chest and back, dying almost immediately.

His heartbreaking death was not only caught on camera, but has gone viral since being posted on Twitter. Many celebs have shared their thoughts, condolences, and outright disgust on what many are calling an “execution.”

Beyoncé is the latest celeb to offer her reaction to the senseless shooting.
