    D.C. police officers were called to a candlelight vigil for a slain mother in the District Saturday evening after an uninvited guest showed up.

    Family and friends were holding a vigil for Yolanda Stone at Spingarn High School in Northeast Washington when a friend of the family of her suspected killer arrived on the scene. That prompted Stone's sister to confront the woman, who was eventually persuaded to leave the scene by police.
    Police are searching for the father of Stone's children, Reynard Cook. Police said Cook shot Stone in front of the kids in February. Stone died from her injuries last weekend.
    Police are offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to Cook's arrest. Police say he also goes by the aliases Reyvon Stone, Don Fitzgerald Hancock and Demarko Brown.
