JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The shooting death of Metro PCS clerk, Shelby Farah, has Northisde businesses on Main Street taking steps to protect their employees.

Teetee Stuart goes to work everyday at the Subway shop on the corner of Main  and 21st streets. On Saturday, her shift ended moments before someone shot Farah at the cell phone store next door.

"That could've been us," said Stuart. "Every time somebody walks in or walks past, we're looking and I'm watching," said Stuart. 

Across the street from the shooting is King Crab House. The manager, Mahmoud Al-Dhalami, says his business has been the target of thefts in the past. He says what happened to Farah hits way too close to home.

"I'm worried of course. I'm not saying I'm not scared because I'm scared," said Al-Dhalami.

Al-Dhalami's business is equipped with cameras, but in light of the shooting they're making sure the entire building is under surveillance. 

"I have six cameras now, and my boss bought a new one with eight eyes around the building," said Al-Dhalami.

There is still no word on when the Metro PCS store will open its doors again.
