Funeral held for murdered Metro PCS clerk
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Family and friends gathered at Paxon Revival Center on the Westside Saturday for the funeral of 20-year-old Shelby Farah.
Farah was gunned down in July at a Northside Metro PCS store at 21st and Main streets where she worked.
Police arrested James Xavier Rhodes, 21, and charged him with murder several days after the crime.
"It was just a senseless death that wasn't needed," said Chante Stephens, who was on the Andrew Jackson High cheer squad with Shelby.
The suspect in the case remains in jail awaiting his next court appearance.
The State Attorney's Office tells Action News it will seek the death penalty.
