TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Friends and family members are grieving the tragic loss of a 31--year-old woman who was shot to death in Arlington on Dec. 15 while she was trying to sell jewelry to raise money to buy Christmas presents for her 6-year-old daughter.

According to a spokesperson for the Waller-Thornton Funeral Home in Trinity, the viewing for April Marie Vancleave is scheduled for today from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the Eastern Gate Cemetery in Trinity.

Vancleave's mother, sister, and daughter live in Trinity, according to the funeral home spokesperson.

One of Vancleave's family members has set up a gofundme page in her money to help with the funeral expenses. So far, the gofundme page has raised $4,880 of its $7,500 goal.

An Associated Press story stated that the Arlington Police Department announced on Tuesday that there is a $10,000 reward for any information leading to arrests and indictments in connection to Vancleave's shooting death.

"Police say the 31-year-old Arlington woman planned to meet a buyer in a store in an exchange arranged online," the AP story stated. "Police say the buyer never showed up, so Vancleave and her husband drove home."

After Vancleave's husband dropped her off at their apartment complex, he went back to work, the AP story stated.

"Lt. Chris Cook says police believe the potential buyers followed the couple and shot Vancleave during an apparent robbery in the parking lot," the AP story stated.

According to police, the store's security video shows two possible suspects. Click here for the You Tube link for the surveillance camera footage of the two possible suspects.
