A Detroit family was forced to mark their 7-year-old daughter’s eighth birthday this week by bringing balloons to her funeral.

Chanell Berry, 7, was reportedly caught in the crossfire over Christmas weekend during a dispute between two women. An 8-year-old girl was also critically injured during the shooting.

Keyana Johnson told WWJ-TV that Berry was playing with her Christmas gifts when she was shot.

“Two days after Christmas they did this to my baby — she had no voice and no choice,” Johnson said.

On Monday, the family brought birthday balloons and wreaths to Berry’s funeral on the day that they should have been celebrating her eighth birthday.

“The bright smile, upbeat personality, just a joy, light the room up with her smile, very upbeat personality,” family member Shay Carr recalled. “Just a beautiful, happy little girl.”

“Justice for Chanell Berry, so that the mom, Keyana Johnson, my cousin can have closure, justice for her baby,” she added.

Addressing former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski's appearance before a House committee on Tuesday, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin bashed the White House for telling him to divulge nothing to his questioners.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Sean Spicer and others who allowed President Donald Trump to destroy their reputations.

The former White House press secretary pranced around in neon green ruffles on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" as part of a bid to rehabilitate his image after serving Trump, and the "Morning Joe" host ripped Spicer and other former officials who gave their loyalty in exchange for nothing.

"It's really unbelievable," Scarborough said. "This is what autocrats do. He's not an autocrat, of course, he's a would-be autocrat, if he lived in a country that was allowed to be one."

"American foreign policy should not be for sale," Rhodes said. "The American military should certainly not be for sale to the highest bidder, especially someone like Mohammed bin Salman, who's been demonstrated to be a murderous dictator killing a journalist for the Washington Post in a consulate in Turkey while also launching this war in Yemen that's had disastrous consequences."
