I should never have to type “murdered 6 month baby”. What type of society are we living in, where  it is a daily occurrence so many young people and in this case a baby gets murdered?

It is just so much senseless violence in the world. Rose has offered to help the family out as they grieve their tragic loss.

A 6-month-old girl died after being shot five times in Chicago on Monday afternoon while her father was reportedly standing on the curb, changing her diaper on the front seat of a minivan.

As police search for the killer of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins, outrage over her death spreads, and the outpouring of grief includes a gesture by the Chicago Bulls‘ Derrick Rose.

Rose has offered to help pay for Jonylah’s funeral expenses. Others have come forward to donate money to a reward fund to help find the killer. Tuesday night, that reward fund stood at $11,000.

There were over 500 homicides in Chicago last year. Please be safe, thoughts and prayers are with Jonylah’s family.
