MIAMI – Jada Page's parents and supporters came to the office of  Florida State Attorney for Miami-Dade County Katherine Fernandez Rundle on Thursday to let her know they don't want the slaying of their daughter to go unsolved.

They also want the public to come forward with any information about Jada's death that could lead to an arrest.

Jada was shot in the head in a drive by shooting outside her grandmother’s home in Northwest Miami Dade  on Aug. 28 -- just a week shy of her ninth birthday.

The girl fought for her life for two days at Jackson Memorial Hospital but eventually died.

Her  father, James Page, was also shot multiple times in the torso during the shooting, but he survived.

Since the shooting, the Page family has held 18 rallies and said they have invited the state attorney to several but she has never attended .

On Thursday, they decided to bring the rally to her. 

Since her death, Jada has become a symbol of gun violence in our neighborhoods and until there is justice for the girl, her family and friends insist that children are not safe to play outside their own homes.
