INDIANAPOLIS -- Funeral services were held Thursday for a 1-year-old girl who was shot and killed inside her home one week ago.

Malaysia Robson was killed in what police called a targeted attack when as many as 40 bullets riddled her home in the 3500 block of Wittfield Street on Indianapolis' northeast side.

During her funeral at Beginnings Fellowship Church, Reverend James Jackson called Malaysia a sweet angel who is headed to her heavenly home.

"I came today and she's laying in a little casket. This will haunt me. I've never seen a baby lay in a casket. I've seen them lay in baby beds, lay in bassinets, lay in mother's arms," said Brenda Jarrell, family friend.

City Councillor La Keisha Jackson said Malaysia's death should motivate the community to put a stop to senseless gun violence.

"It was a wake up call for us today is my message. Wake up call to determine where do we go from here? We have work to do. We have to put boots on the ground. It's enough to stop talking and now it's about action," said Jackson.

Malaysia was buried in Washington Park Cemetery. 

No arrests have been made in her killing.
