Community gathers for Macon teen shot at home
Family members of a Macon teenager shot to death in June, gathered at Macon City Hall with friends and community members Thursday, to honor the victim's life.
Seventeen-year-old Shar'bora "Shy" Daniels died in June when a bullet struck her in the head while she played video games at her parents home.
Family members were presented with a memorial plaque, and they hope to place another plaque at Shy's favorite spot, Central High School, where she recently graduated.
The family is also using the event to help raise money to pay for the burial. Donations can be made at Mid-South Federal Credit Union in the name of the Shy Daniels Burial Fund.
Shy was recently accepted to Macon State College and Clark College in Atlanta. Her death is still unsolved.
"Shy was on her road to doing what she wanted to do, and this was taken from her, and with doing things like this maybe she sees this, and sees that you know, we love her, the people in the community love her," said Shy's stepmother Lori Daniels.
Macon Mayor Robert Reichert was also at the event to offer his condolences and talk about the tragedy.
