    The family of Tequila Forschee, a 12-year-old girl killed by a stray bullet at her grandmother's Miami Gardens home in 2013, gathered on what would have been her birthday to demand justice.

    Tequila died Aug. 14, 2013, after bullets pierced through her grandmother's home from outside. Detectives initially believed the house was targeted by gunfire but that the bullets were not intended for the child.

    More than five years later, the case remains unsolved.

    Family, friends and members of the community gathered Monday at the Dr. Lester Brown Park, where a tribute for Tequila was left behind.
