JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Family and friends of sisters Keyonna and Keshell Brown gathered for a candlelight vigil on Randolph Street Saturday night.

The women, along with two other men, were killed Thursday in the Murray Hill neighborhood.

"I miss her so much," said Vicki Newberry. "She was my best friend my only friend."

Dozens of people showed up to pay their respects. They wore t-shirts bearing pictures of the women. A makeshift memorial has started to grow just feet from the crime scene.

According to the women's aunt, Sadea Brown, two years ago the sisters lost their mother in a car accident. Brown said their grandmother was raising them along with their three other siblings.

So far, there has been no arrest made in connection to the killings.

Brown said she hopes whoever is responsible is caught soon so the neighborhood and her family can start to heal.

"They didn't deserve this," said Brown. "Whoever the killer is come forward because they didn't deserve this." 

According to family and friends, a fund has been set up on to help pay for funeral expenses.
