MINNEAPOLIS - It was an emotionally charged vigil with a challenge.
"We need to find out what happened," said Billy Hawkins, the father of Antionette Hawkins.
Dozens gathered Saturday afternoon to honor the life of Anionette, a 25-year old shot and killed on May 23. Police say someone entered a home on Stinson Parkway in northeast Minneapolis and shot her. No arrests have been made and authorities have few details to go on.
"That's the key reason why we're here," said Inspector Bryan D. Schafer with the Minneapolis Police. "We are asking the public to help in this homicide case."
Authorities aren't the only ones asking for someone to come forward with information.
"My goal is to help find my daughter's killer," said Hawkins. "She was a loving person. She even taught me how to love."
Representatives from MADD Dads and Hope Ministries also attended the vigil and urged neighbors to be part of a solution to violence.
Anyone with information is asked to call Minneapolis Police at 612-692-TIPS (8477).
