Dozens of police officers and clergy joined Amy Hayes’s family and neighbors Tuesday night at the site where the five-year-old was shot Monday, caught in a crossfire on her way to a corner store.

Amy’s great grandmother, Vivian Nealy, watched the walk through Sandtown-Winchester from the same window where she was sitting when she saw the girl crumple to the ground, a bullet in her groin.
