Jesus Take the Wheel: Nine-year-old Jamyla Bolden was fatally shot Tuesday night as she laid in her bed inside her Ferguson home.

James Bolden said his only daughter was lying in her bed doing homework inside their home in the 9200 block of Ellison in Ferguson, Mo., at about 9:30 p.m.

Her mother was shot in the leg but is expected to be okay. James Bolden told KMOV, “I never in a million years thought that I’d be laying my daughter to rest.”

Jamyla Bolden had just started in the fourth grade when she was gunned down. No arrests have been made in the shooting.

I wonder what the #BlackLivesMatter movement has to say about Jamyla Bolden’s untimely death?
