A vigil held for a 1-year-old girl who was fatally shot in Henrico, Virginia, last week ended with police being called after a fight broke out at a time meant for healing for family and friends.
Jaidah Morris and her father were both shot inside their home. Morris remains hospitalized, but his daughter died.
Friends, family, and others there to show support gathered for a vigil in front of the home where the shooting occurred, but towards the end of the service, tensions rose and a violent scuffle ensued. Police were called to the scene and at least one person was seen lying on a lawn with what was described as severe injuries.
It’s unclear what prompted the fight, but authorities soon secured the scene, allowing the vigil to continue until completion.
No arrests have been made in relation to the shooting that claimed the little girl’s life, which lasted just 390 days.
