The mother of 19-year-old Kristal Bayron-Nieves, who was fatally shot while working at Burger King last month, is pleading with city leaders to get the gun violence across the city under control. 
Bayron-Nieves was shot on Jan. 9 while working the overnight shift in a Harlem Burger King. 
Police say at around 1 a.m., a man walked in, pulled out a gun and tried to rob the place. The robber then shot Bayron-Nieves in the torso before running away. 
A few days later, officers arrested Winston Glynn, a 30-year-old homeless man, and charged him with murder, robbery, criminal use of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon. 
Bayron-Nieves’ mother, Kristie Nieves, and her attorney say local and federal government’s are failing those whose lives were taken from them by gun violence. 
The attorney for the family says they’re contemplating filing a lawsuit against Burger King and the manufacturer of the gun.
