JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Shelby Farah's mother says now that an arrest has been made in her daughter's death, she can finally move on.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says it made an arrest in the slaying of Metro PCS worker 20-year-old Shelby Farah late Tuesday night.

Darlene Farah vowed to camp out on the steps of the sheriff's sheriff's office until police found the man responsible for killing her daughter.

She told Action News that a feeling of relief washed over her when she got the news.

"I wanted to scream. I did scream. I just I'm happy that he's off the street," said Farah.

The fatal shooting happened at the Metro PCS store on North Main Street last Saturday night.

Police say a man with a gun walked into the store and demanded money. Witnesses said the man covered his face as he pointed the gun. When they ran out, they told police they heard the gunshots.

A few days after the shooting, police released an image of a possible suspect walking near the store with a bandana around his neck.

"Without the community and the media I don't think they would have made an arrest that fast," said Farah.

You know what some people are just plain out right stupid. First of all obama made that comment how long after trayvon martin's death? You my friend is a racist. This young lady may not be my same skin complexion but I know her death was uncalled for. But you don't have to worry your pretty little head he won't get away with murder because of the color of his skin...your comment just prove how racist this country is.

My heart is broken for this Mom. I pray for her as she has to wait to face this guy. It was just released from jail after 2 1/2 years in April. Did not take it long to commit a crime. This is a crime that it deserves the death penalty without any appeals. Probably knows the system well and will plea out for life. Coward is what it is. The one good thing was "family" members turned it in.
