Senseless violence continued in Chicago this week when 6-month old Jonylah Watkins was gunned down while her father looked on. Bulls star Derrick Rose has offered to pay for the funeral. Others have donated to the reward fund which now stands at $11,000.

Rose stepped in after a social media campaign spearheaded by anti-violence groups in the city contacted him. The Bulls guard’s not known to be much of a public figure but has spoken about Chicago violence in the past.



The police have no credible leads but believe Jonylah’s father was the target of the attacks. Goes without saying but let’s all hope the killer(s) are brought to justice.
