MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- It has been five weeks since five-year-old Laylah Petersen was shot and killed while sitting in her grandfather's lap at a home near 58th and Fairmount. On Thursday, December 11th, Laylah's mother visited Children's Hospital with a very special delivery in honor of her little girl.
In the hours and days following the shooting on November 6th shooting, supporters placed stuffed animals outside the family's home to offer them some comfort.
Many of those stuffed animals were hand-delivered to Children's Hospital by Laylah's mother Ashley Fogl and daughter Destiny. The stuffed animals will be handed out to children receiving care at the hospital.
Children's is one of several organizations receiving the stuffed animals.
"It`s a beautiful feeling knowing I can give something to the children. I love children. I love my children. I love people`s children. It`s really nice to give them something. We have good days, bad days and overwhelming days, but all we can do is continue to heal," Fogl said.
As far as the police investigation into the shooting of Laylah Petersen, no arrests have been made, and the family's spokesperson says they spoke to police on Thursday, and there is nothing new to report.
A $10,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest in this case. Anyone with information should contact the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360, or ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS. All calls will be kept confidential.
