FERGUSON (AP) - Funeral arrangements are now in place for the 9-year-old girl killed when someone shot into a Ferguson home last week.
KMOV-TV reports that visitation for Jamyla Bolden will be from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Layne Renaissance Chapel. Another visitation begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church, followed by the funeral service at 11 a.m.
Ira DeWitt, wife of St. Louis Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III, has said her family will pay Jamyla's funeral expenses.
Jamyla was on her mother's bed doing homework about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when the shooting occurred. Her mother suffered a wound to the leg and was treated at a hospital.
Police continue to search for the shooter. An $8,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
