Members of Chicago's Englewood community gathered to call for peace as police questioned a person of interest in the shooting death of Arianna Gibson, 6.

Approximately 100 people marched through the streets of the neighborhood near 74th Street and Sangamon Monday night, demanding justice and an end to violence. The marchers included Gibson's grieving relatives.

The 6-year-old was supposed to start first grade Monday but was shot to death Sunday as she slept on a couch in a family member's home. Someone fired gunshots through the window of the house.
