CLEVELAND — Days after Lyric Lawson was killed, the crowds were massive.

Now it's a week later and still there are still no arrests.

Monday, a much smaller group of community activists met inside Cleveland City Hall demanding justice for 6-year-old Lyric and pleading with anyone who knows something, to report it.

"If you've seen something, say something, there's no snitch rule, speak up," said activist Yvonne Lauretta. "If you know who killed this girl, say something. Don't hold off and not say nothing, open your mouth."

Although the cries for justice are a bit quieter now, these community leaders say, it won't be in vain.
