It was an emotional night on Detroit’s west side as family and friends paid tribute to five-year-old Mariah Davis.

Mariah died on Wednesday after she found her grandmother's gun and shot herself.

There are really no words to describe how heart wrenching it was to see so many children remembering Mariah.

Tonight, loved ones remember a little girl with a big heart.

Police say Mariah was staying at her grandmother's house on Oakfield on Detroit’s west side.

It was the middle of the night; her grandmother was downstairs making something to eat when Mariah got hold of her gun. She pulled the trigger, accidentally killing herself.
