Vigil held for Canton teen who was shot and killed

CANTON - A vigil was held Friday night in honor of a 14-year-old girl who was shot and killed a week ago Saturday.

Members of the community are paid their respects to Sylvia McGee at the Southeast Community Learning Center on Sherrick Road Southeast.

Sylvia, an eighth grade student at the Compton Learning Center’s Connections Program, was found shot to death near 11th St. and Bieyl Court Southwest Saturday morning. Loved ones have remembered her as a kind girl who had no trouble making friends.

"[She] was always funny, smiling, nothing ever dragged her down not one thing," friend Tabitha McCarthy told WKYC earlier this week.

No arrests have been made so far in the case.
