Candle light vigil held for victims of quadruple homicide

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Emotions are running high as the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office continues to search for whoever is behind the shooting death of four people in the Murray Hill area. Dozens of people crowded Randolph Street Monday night for a vigil in honor of the victims. 

Both children and adults were brought to tears, with candles in hand trying to make sense of it all. Four people shot and killed Thursday night inside of a home now surrounded with rest in peace posters, one reads "we love you daddy."

"I don't know what to tell his kids," said Sabrina Johnson. "They keep asking for their father."

Johnson, who is Derrick Williams' aunt says he leaves behind three children, and has joined one of his son's and his own father who died several years ago.

"His daughter is in pain," said Johnson. "His family is in pain."
