Richmond Times-Dispatch - - METRO2 -

A can­dle­light prayer vigil will be held this week­end to honor Jaidah “Monae” Mor­ris, the 1-year-old girl who died af­ter a shoot­ing in Hen­rico County early Tues­day.

The vigil will be held at 5 p.m. Sun­day at 502 Fayette Ave., where the fa­tal shoot­ing took place.

The fam­ily is ask­ing that at­ten­dees bring pink and white bal­loons, as well as can­dles.

The shoot­ing, which also left a 20-year-old man wounded, un­folded about 2:30 a.m. Tues­day.

Au­thor­i­ties said Thurs­day that they would not re­lease ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion be­cause the case in­volves an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The 20-year-old, who neigh­bors said was the girl’s fa­ther, was taken to a hospi­tal with life-threat­en­ing wounds, po­lice said.

An up­date on his con­di­tion was unavail­able Thurs­day.
