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.
