JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Darlene Farah is still in shock over her daughter's murder, but says she will hold vigil outside the Duval County Jail until her daughter's killer is inside it.

"It's like it's not happening. This is not real, it's not," said Darelene Farah, Shelby Farah's mother.

Shelby was murdered while working at the Metro PCS store on North Main. The 20 year old was a manager there and an active member of the community.

Darlene told Action News she won't get much sleep until Shelby's killer is off the streets. "I'm camped out here at the Police Memorial Building. I'm not leaving until they bring him in," said Darlene.

With her pastor by her side, Darelene waits at JSO headquarters for that very moment. Farah says she wants the community to help bring her daughter's killer to justice.

The suspect was captured on surveillance video moments before the shooting. "I want people to hurry up and get out there and pick up the phone and call if anybody knows anything," said Darelene.

Darlene says Shelby was commited to her community, even volunteered as a cheerleading coach for young children.

Until an arrest is made, Darlene promises to honor her daughter whose life was cut short with a constant vigil at the jail. "We need justice for Shelby. We need to get this man off the streets. If we don't get [him] off the streets he's going to do it to somebody else," said Darlene.

If you know anything that can help police find Shelby Farah's killer, call Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.

instead if bashing on for crimes and bringing up Trayvon Martin or even Obama. take a look at your own public official example the mayor and sheriff. last time I check criminals came in White, Hispanic and etc. that's the problem with you Americans you always point your fingers to one race. Crime is not side. Wake Up because our youth are dying everyday. Stop bashing because god see HIgh and he see LOW. think what you say it might just be you burying a love one. pull together

We should all go down with her and rally and protest until these maggots are CONVICTED of murder.

This murder should outrage everyone. Hey MAD Dads, Jackson, Sharpton, "New" Black Panthers, NAACP~what are you going to do about this? What are you doing to stop the violence within your community? Please do not start with the lack of ANYTHING for these criminals. This community has lots of representation, programs and media exposure. Cannot watch one minute of TV without commercials, previews to movies, TV programs, that is not dominated by black culture. Oh please, enough of the slavery and lack of opportunities. What more should be done to "help' when all the help seems to make more people that do not, will not further their lives. Yes, I know there are some withing the community that do make it "out" but just look at this year so far just in Jax. Of course the communities in California jumped on the chance to riot and loot over the Martin/Zimmerman decision. I pray for this Mom and family as they wait for an arrest. There has to be some one that knows exactly whom this is as well as the one that appeared to be the look out. Step up and do the right thing.

I hope she misses the tuurd, I hope, instead, that his carcass is delivered to the mortuary.

I'll believe it when it happens, WardG, but I would be willing to bet you not a word is said about these latest victims..It will all be about trayvon or davis..I mean, seriously, the city paid for and set up a memorial for one of these thugs.

In another news article they mentioned that the victim was an active volunteer for the campaign of Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown. Would love to know where he stands on this type of violence. Crickets.... Additionally, Congresswoman Corrine Brown who represents the district where the crime was committed could not keep her opinions and "outrage" off national media shows like CNN throughout the Trayvon Martin saga. Would love to see some of the same outrage on this senseless crime.

This is a total tragedy! From what I have read on the victims twitter, she seemed like a hard working young woman that was proud of her job and was just promoted to a manager position. With Obama visiting Jacksonville this Thurs it would be awesome if he said some kind words about Shelby Farah. Just like he did for Trayvon and the girl who performed at Obama's inauguration shot dead in Chicago. National awareness on crimes like this should not discriminate nor have a political agenda.

I hope this pile of human waste never makes it inside the jail, I hope he is killed by JSO, like any sick animal deserves.
