KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The reward fund for a little girl's killer now stands at $21,000. Someone shot and killed six-year old Angel Hooper more than a week ago outside the 7-Eleven at East 107th and Blue Ridge in Kansas City, Mo.

Police have yet to make any arrests.

Sunday there was a parade of support for Angel and her family that started at Ruskin High School. Her family laid her to rest on Saturday, but they say they haven’t been able to rest because they know her killer is still on the loose.

The parade went from the high school to the 7-Eleven, with cheerleaders and a marching band leading the way.

They know for a fact several people witnessed the shooting and say they won’t stop chanting until that person is behind bars.

“Just put myself in your place. I know whoever did it, they got little sisters. Just put yourself in my predicament. How would you feel if it was you?” mom Charity Guinn said.

Police and AdHoc have received several tips, AdHoc says the tips they’ve been getting all involve the same suspect’s name. If you know anything about what happened to Angel, call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS.
