    Lake Stevens community members walk past the chalked word "Love Molly" during Monday night's memorial walk at Centennial Trail for Seattle resident Molly Conley, 15, who was fatally shot on June 1 while walking in Lake Stevens. The shooter has not been found.

LAKE STEVENS -- A community march was held Monday night in Lake Stevens in memory of Molly Conley, who was killed in a drive-by shooting here on June 1.
Conley was 15, of Seattle.
March organizers were expecting as many as 200 people, said Tom Thorleifson, a commander with the Lake Stevens American Legion Post 181.
The reward money for tips in the case had reached nearly $9,000 at last count, he said.
The march was organized as a way for people to spend time together as they try to cope with the death, Thorleifson said.
"This is to show support," Thorleifson said. "This is something just to band together."
Meanwhile, Snohomish County sheriff's major crimes detectives are staying tight-lipped about their investigation.
The shooting happened about 11:15 p.m. in the area of South Lake Stevens Road and South Davies Road. Few details have been released. The death marked the first homicide in Lake Stevens in recent years. Local police began working with the sheriff's office almost immediately.
Despite repeated media reports about a black sport utility vehicle somehow being involved, "no vehicle has been identified as associated with this investigation," sheriff's bureau chief Kevin Prentiss said Monday.
People can donate to the "Molly Conley Reward Fund" at any Wells Fargo bank. Tiplines include Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS or the sheriff's office at 425-388-3845.
The family asks for donations in Molly's memory to Mary's Place in Seattle, Victim Support Services in Everett, and the Washington state chapter of US Lacrosse.
