ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Dozens of people attended a rally Friday aimed at stopping gun violence in St. Louis.

The rally comes after a violent week.

There were at least 14 shootings and 27 shooting victims, according to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

Among the shooting victims are four employees at a business on Cherokee. Police said they were killed by the owner in an apparent murder-suicide.

Chelsey Oliver attended the rally and made picket signs shaped like coffins.

"You can't even go to work, and that is a tourist area, so what does that say about St. Louis," Oilver said.

A 7 Eleven employee was also shot to death while at work. He leaves a pregnant wife.

"This needs to stop right now because it makes no sense," Oliver said. "Why is everything so violent?"

21st Ward Alderman Antonio French attended the rally.

"Everyone who is a shooting victim in St. Louis has a family," he said. "All lives are valuable."
