GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A good citizen stepped up to clean the graffiti off the memorial site of a little girl.
ShaLonda Poole was murdered not far from her home when she was 7-years-old in 1990. On Tuesday, her memorial site in Greensboro was covered in graffiti.
ShaLonda's mother contacted police about what she believed to be gang-related spray-paint on the sign.
The very next day - the sign had been cleaned up.
