FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) - There is still no arrest in the murder of a nine year old Ferguson girl. It's been 5 days since Jamyla Bolden was shot and killed in her home. There are plans to honor her Sunday with a call for peace and help in solving the crime. They center around a march and a balloon release.

Jamyla had just started fourth grade at Koch Elementary school when the tragedy happened. This is also where the march will end today. People are being asked to gather at the corner of Canfield and Ellison at 4pm. That is very close to Jamyla`s home where she was shot and killed.

Jamyla was killed Tuesday night while doing homework on her mother`s bed. Her mother was also hit in her leg. Someone opened fire into the home, fatally wounding Jamyla. Her senseless death has stunned the community, leading to vigils including one on Thursday in front of Jamyla`s home.

During Thursday`s vigil, pink balloons were released. People are being asked to bring pink balloons to this afternoon`s march as well to be released again. Pink was Jamyla`s favorite color.

The police investigation into the shooting continues. We checked in with Ferguson police this morning and have heard of no new developments.
