She was strong, sweet, humble with a lot of humor. She was very loved by her family,” a family member posted. “The fact that she was killed from gun violence, this city is getting out of hand, and this is why I don’t go outside. This girl got four beautiful little girls, what about them?” a friend wrote.

Family members have confirmed that the victim in a shooting at 2:30 a.m. Sunday on Lem Turner Drive was Tayda Smith, a mother of four who lived in Jacksonville. She was one of two shooting deaths on Saturday night. A third person was also injured in a shooting that night. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
