1-year old girl killed and 2-year old sister injured in Toledo shooting

Keondra Hooks, age 1
Someone shot into a house from the outside, in Toledo, Ohio.  Sleeping on the floor of the home were 1-year old Keondra Hooks and her 2-year old sister, Leondra, who were begin watched by a family member while the parents were out.  Keondra was hit in the head and killed.  Leondra is critically injured in the upper body.  So far, no suspects have been caught.

From an article:

It happened Thursday night just before 11 pm in the Moody Manor Apartments. Police say the suspects approached the house from behind and fired more than 12 rounds into the home. 
Leondra Hooks, age 2
One-year-old Keondra Hooks and her two-year old sister Leondra were sleeping on the on the floor. Police say Keondra was shot in the head and died. 
Leondra was hit in the upper body. The parents were not home and the children were being watched by a family member. 
Police have no suspects.  Moody Manor Apartments has surveillance cameras and police are currently reviewing the video. So far police have no suspects.   
The stormy weather that rolled through last night may make it more difficult for police to id-the suspects even though the cameras were rolling. That's why Chief Diggs needs your help.
