Candlelight Vigil Held for Macon Teen

A community came together to remember a young Macon woman who was shot Tuesday while playing video games with her brother inside her home.  Family and friends held a vigil Wednesday in front of the Brookhaven Drive home where it happened.

Shar'bora Daniels who friends and family call Shy had just graduated from Central High School.  The 18-year-old's passing has devastated those who knew her.

Wednesday night, family and friends lit candles and sang songs in remembrance of the college bound student who they say they still can't believe is gone.

Cousin Courtney Powell said, "I was not here. I did not see anything but the visual of the story of what happened plays like a video in my head one hundred times a day and it will not go away. I just, even now, I can't, I can't believe she's gone even now. It don't seem real."

"She had dreams and I want everybody to know that when acts of violence like this happen, it takes away dreams, not just that child's dreams but the dreams of the family," said Frank Dixon from Macon who represents The Peace Keepers organization.
Daniels died Tuesday morning.

Lt. Sean Defoe with the Bibb County Sheriff's office says she was shot through a wall of a home on Brookhaven Drive just before 12:30 Tuesday morning.
