Family, Friends Honor Teen Killed By Stray Bullet

Hundreds of family, friends, and classmate came to Central High School's auditorium to honor Shar'bora Daniels, the Bibb County teen killed by a stray bullet last Tuesday. The 18-year-old Central High graduate was hit by the bullet while sitting inside her father's house off  Brookhaven Road.

"It was very overwhelming to see all the people that were here that loved my daughter very much," said Shirley Ponder, Daniels' mother.

Shirley Ponder described her daughter as the perfect child who was her angel. She said while she was grateful to know that so many people supported her and her family, the funeral was a difficult day.

"This was one of the worst days of my life whoever took my baby, y'all only took her body, y'all didn't take her heart, she's still here with me and her family," said Ponder.

For some of Daniels' friends and classmates, it was hard to believe Shar'bora was gone.

"With her dying it's like surreal, Shy, not Shy you know that's my girl you don't know what you're talking about and then when you hear about and you're here it's like, it's not real but it is," said Sh'litshu Fieeny of Macon.

And for others, the funeral was just too real.

"All I do, All I do is cry, that was my best friend, my only best friend, I didn't want to bury my best friend," said Breanna Scott of Macon.

The question of who killed Daniels remains unanswered, which makes the funeral hard for some.

"It really hurts not knowing who did it, it really hurts she didn't do anything to nobody," said Scott.

"This is a 18-year-old child, life was taken away from her like that, minding her own business, she wasn't doing anything by minding her own business, where's the outcry?," said Leon Jones of Bibb County Coroner.
