Funeral for baby killed in shooting set for next week
Funeral arrangements have been set for the baby who died after being shot earlier this week.
Pastor Cory Brooks, who has spoken for the victim’s family, tweeted tonight: “The Funeral arrangements for Jonylah Watkins are as follows: Tues March 19 2013 10am Wake 11am Funeral.” The service will take place at Brooks’s church, New Beginnings Church, at 6620 S. King Dr, according to the tweet.
6-month-old Jonylah Watkins was shot multiple times Monday afternoon as her father changed her diaper inside a van. Police say the gunman blindsided his intended target, 25-year-old Jonathan Watkins.
The baby underwent several surgeries at Comer Children’s Hospital but died the next day.
