JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Darlene Farah struggled to take even a few steps toward her daughter's vigil Thursday outside the Metro PCS shop where she was killed. She says the pain of Shelby's loss is now real.

"I can't stand up. I'm just, my legs are weak," she said.

With her son and daughter by her side, the family said they had to put their emotions aside to be there to thank the community that helped put Shelby's alleged killer behind bars.

"We all came together as a whole and got this guy off the streets. I want you all to give yourselves a hand," said Shelby's brother, Caleb.

"It was just a senseless death that wasn't needed," said Chante Stephens, who was on the Andrew Jackson High cheer squad with Shelby.

There wasn't a dry eye outside Metro PCS, the place Shelby died.

Shelby's viewing will be Aug. 2 at Green Lawn Funeral Home. Her funeral will be on Aug. 3. The church has yet to be announced.
