Funeral services for Kianna Johnson, a 10-year-old West Baltimore girl who died Friday of injuries she suffered a day earlier in a hit-and-run accident, will be held at 12:30 p.m. today at the Joseph H. Brown Funeral Home, 2140 N. Fulton St., Baltimore.

The family also has scheduled a candlelight vigil to remember the girl from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. today in the 1500 block of W. Baltimore St.

Kianna, of the 1500 block of W. Fairmount Ave., was struck Thursday by a car as she crossed West Baltimore Street, a block from her home, police said. The driver did not stop and other drivers pursued the fleeing car, which police described as a green station wagon, possibly a Mercury Sable.

Kianna, who was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, was pronounced dead Friday afternoon.

Baltimore police are asking anyone with information to call 410-396-2606.
