The family of a toddler who died in a shooting Sunday night has set up a crowdfunding account to pay for his funeral.

Last night, family members described Mar'Kavin Kyrus Cormier as "full of joy."

Here's what his relatives had to say about him on the GoFundMe site:

"My innocent little cousin was shot and killed last night. I don’t know what really happened but I do know Mar’Kavin (King) lost his life behind a gun. My family and I are trying to make sure he has a proper burial. He didn’t have a life insurance policy . If anyone is willing to help.. It would be gladly appreciated."
