BALTIMORE, Md. (WNEW) — A candlelight vigil was held in Baltimore’s Waverly neighborhood in honor of 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, who tragically died during a drive-by shooting last Friday.

As they prepare to lay her to rest a week later, her family is struggling to make sense of it all.

“My baby boy and me, we’re not gonna have my daughter,” Elliott’s father says through tears. “She’s not coming back. We’re not going to see her again, and it’s not right. I’m mad.”

Police have promised the person responsible will be brought to justice by the time she is laid to rest on Friday.

“I ain’t worried about nothing else,” her father says. “I want who killed my baby.”

A person of interest is already in custody, according to WJZ.
