Community holds vigil for 4-year-old girl shot in head

CINCINNATI – Avondale residents took to the streets Saturday to take a stand against violence and pray for a 4-year-old girl who was shot in the head Thursday.

Martaisha Thomas was shot at a party outside an apartment building at about 8:10 p.m. Thursday. She was in stable condition but still hospitalized Saturday, according to Donald Fairbanks Jr., her grandfather.

People at the vigil were trying to understand how someone could drive through their neighborhood opening fire at crowds of people.
