The young girl passed away on Sunday, July 13 after being taken off of life support. Balloons and local residents filled the Clarke Street playground to express their love towards this neighborhood child. Sierra was a student of Clarke Street School and resided in the neighborhood where violence are exhibited frequently. The residents in the Clarke Street corridor are now demanding change from local politicians and the police department. Two suspects were arrested in the shooting of the ten-year-old and are currently awaiting trial.
