Jerryon Stevens looks in the direction of sirens and police lights while hanging out with family on the front stoop of his great grandmother's home on the west side of Chicago. A former straight-A student, Stevens was arrested last summer for selling heroin. This spring, one of his best friends was gunned down. His grandmother and mother have impressed upon him the need to change. “I can change, but I don’t know when. I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said.
