Aiyana Stanley Jones was laid to reston Saturday at Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit, Michigan. Hundreds of people paid their respects to the little girl and family. The 7-year-old was killed last Sunday by a police bullet when officers raided her home looking for a murder suspect. “Baby,” song from teen singer Justin Bieber, her favorite artist, was played at the funeral. Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy. Police say Aiyana was shot Sunday when an officer’s gun discharged inside the house after he was jostled by, or collided with, her grandmother, according to the Associated Press. The Jones family has now filed two lawsuits.
