CHICAGO (WLS) — The family and friends of a woman who was killed in a south suburban shooting held a vigil and balloon release Thursday.

Chicago postal worker Mechellea Williams was found shot to death Wednesday morning in a car in Orland Park.

Family members who attended the vigil near her Chicago home were heartbroken but determined, honoring their loved-one whose life was taken too soon.

“For them to take my baby away, we were her babies,” the victim’s sister Erykah Williams-Echols said. “And for them to take my sister away from us, it hurts so bad.”

Friends and relatives of Williams gathering near her home Thursday on Chicago’s Far South Side. The postal worker and mother of three was shot and killed in south suburban Orland Park Tuesday night while sitting in a vehicle at the Orland Ridge Towns & Villas apartment complex. She was found the next morning.
