LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Mayor Greg Fischer on Thursday joined family members of a murdered Louisville toddler to offer condolences and plead for an arrest.
Family members and neighbors cried and prayed after the Wednesday shooting death of Neriah “NeNe” Miller, who was 16 months old when someone gunned her down on her front porch. Her mother, 21-year-old Sherrie Miller, was injured in the shooting and remains hospitalized.
Metro Police have no suspects in the shooting, which happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday, and detectives watched Thursday evening as people gathered at the shooting scene on 37th
Street near Market.
"Whoever did this, they will be brought to justice," said Tijuana Twyman, the grandmother of the murdered toddler. "These people don't know how callous it was to shoot a baby."
