Dooley’s in Chicago, a city with one of the highest murder rates for under-25s in the whole of America.
She begins by meeting the Hardmons, a family crippled by grief following the shooting of their 19-year-old daughter Ashley two months ago. As if their desperate testimonies aren’t harrowing enough, a mass shooting occurs during Dooley’s time in the city with 13 people gunned down on a local basketball court. Whether they’re a policeman or an ex-offender, everyone Dooley speaks to shares the same fear that their loved ones could be next.
The presenter travels to Chicago, which has been dubbed the `murder capital of America', where almost half of the people killed in 2013 were under 25. She meets the Hardmons who are struggling to come to terms with the murder of their 19-year-old daughter Ashley, who was caught in the crossfire of a gang shooting. Stacey also travels to a prison boot camp for young offenders and meets a teenager who received his first gun at 14, and has already been jailed four times.
