Fall Out Boy has announced a $100,000 donation through the band’s charity fund to the anti-gun violence organization Everytown for Gun Safety following the mass shooting during a July 4 parade in Highland Park, Illinois.

Seven people were killed in the shooting, while dozens more were injured.

“Chicago is where we grew up, and we are heartbroken for the families and entire community of Highland Park, as well as every single victim of wanton gun violence in America,” Fall Out Boy says in a statement.
