KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Friends and family of a 10-year-old girl killed in a drive-by shooting one week ago came together for a march in her honor. 

Machole Stewart died after someone drove through a Kansas City, KS, neighborhood and fired several shots from a vehicle. 

She was hit by a stray bullet while inside a house. 

As the search for her killer is ongoing. Machole's loved ones remembered her in a special way Sunday.

The Gateway High Steppers were out in full force - not just for any parade either. This was for one of their own.

"I have to wake up and not see my baby girl anymore. I can't comb her hair. I can't take her to practice and do the stuff that I want to do. Halloween was just Friday, and she wanted a costume, and I couldn't take her to go get a costume," Machole's mother, Angela Fowler, said.

The parade wound down the streets she walked and through the neighborhood she played before ending at her home, where the shooting happened.

"We can get out more for Machole and for anybody (whose) child has been taken from them. I think the march was for that. You know, we needed to get and let them know that we're not gonna quit," Machole's grandmother, Kimberly Blackmon, said.

For Machole's sister, Lenasia Walton, the day was about the importance of family.

"If you don't have family, then what do you have? You don't have anything to go on, and people to support you. So in case you're thinking about getting the person who did this, then that is not good," she said.

Family members are leaning on one another and have been since the shooting happened.

They're also asking for the public's help, asking anyone with information to come forward about the case.
