For the first time, we heard from the mother of 6-month-old Miracle Murray, the baby girl who was shot and killed in front of her Detroit home on Saturday.

The family gathered with law enforcement and the clergy for an interfaith peace rally on Friday.

Between tears, Jennifer Murray shared one of her favorite memories of Miracle.

"She was my alarm clock every morning," Jennifer said. "I'm gonna miss that."

The interfaith group hopes to provide healing and hope to the community by reaching out not only to shooting victims but also those on the other side of the barrel.

Detroit police released a sketch of a suspect in the shooting on Thursday. Jennifer is hoping somebody speaks out and turns the suspect in.
