A community has been left outraged after an anti-violence campaigner was shot dead outside his office. 

 

Willie Cooper, 58, from Chicago was less than a block from his anti-violence organization on Saturday when someone inside a dark-colored vehicle shot him in the mouth and torso at about 4.15pm, ABC 7 reported. 

 

Cooper's body was slumped on the ground outside a liquor store when he was pronounced dead at 4.28pm. 

 

Family and friends are reeling after losing Cooper, one of 30 victims shot in Chicago this weekend - 10 of those gunned down died.
