FOX News star Gianno Caldwell broke down in tears as he opened up about his brother’s death.
Christian Caldwell, 18, was shot dead and two others injured after gunfire erupted in Chicago early Friday morning.
Gianno, 35, appeared on Fox & Friends on Tuesday – just days after the tragedy – as he called for justice.
He thanked people online for the tributes following Christian’s death.
He said: “I want to thank you all for the love and support from across the country for my family at the most difficult time of our lives.”
Fans rushed to comment on Twitter as they said their “heart is breaking” for Gianno and his family.
One said: “Far away (in) Australia, but we are with you, Gianno.”
While another commented: “Sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. God bring peace and comfort to your family.”
Gianno appeared on Hannity on Monday night, where he claimed his family was “paying the price” for the soft-gun policy.
He said, “Well, Sean, I come here tonight as a man feeling shattered. My little brother just turned 18. He was a good boy.”
He claimed, “You can’t go downtown Chicago now without looking around.”
Gianno said he took “no blame” for Christian’s death, but said: “It hurts me and now I have to think about solutions and what I can do to make sure my little brother’s life means something. “
Christian was shot dead while two others were injured after gunfire erupted in Morgan Park.
Around 50 shell casings were found at the scene and bullets went through windows of nearby homes, CBS reported.
The suspect fled the scene in a black van, police said.
Gianno received a phone call telling him his brother had been killed.
He described Friday as the “worst day of his existence”.
Sharing a picture of Christian smiling in his graduation attire, he said: “I never thought my little brother’s life would be stolen from him.”
