Saint Petersburg, FL -- Paris Whitehead-Hamilton would have been 10 years old today, but her life was taken away by senseless violence.

A candlelight vigil will take place today, Jan. 9, at 4 p.m. at 771 Paris Ave. S. in honor of Paris.

Paris was killed when her house was hit by more than 50 rounds of bullets from an assault rifle in a drive-by shooting two years ago.
