DETROIT (AP) - Civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton has delivered a stirring eulogy for a 7-year-old girl shot and killed when Detroit police raided her home.
Sharpton is challenging the congregation to stop the violence that has recently swept Detroit.
He didn't direct much criticism at Detroit police during his 25-minute address. But he questioned whether police in the affluent suburbs would throw a stun grenade into a house as the city's police did before entering.
Hundreds of people filled the 3,000-seat church Saturday to pay respects to Aiyana Stanley-Jones who died last weekend.
