Thomas was in the custody of the Division of Family and Children Services at the time of the shooting in Ellenwood. She had been in the foster home for about two weeks.
A GoFundMe page was set up by Thomas' aunt, Kiya Caldwell, to help raise money for her funeral costs. As of Monday evening, the page had raised more than $500.
Police do not have any suspects in custody. It’s also unknown why the home was targeted.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 770-724-7850. A $5,000 reward is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case.
