JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Family members identify a mother of three killed in the Woodstock area of Jacksonville as Sharmeka Jackson, 31.

Jackson was found dead in a home on Prospect Street, July 22. 

She'd been shot. Police have not identified a suspect. 

Jackson's father, Jermaine Jackson, says the family will host a vigil in Sharmeka's memory at Memorial Park in Jacksonville. The vigil will start at 5:30pm, Friday, July 29.

Jackson's father says he wants the killer to turn themselves in.

"Just turn yourself in, I'm not seeking the death penalty, turn yourself in... you might get the death penalty running the streets," said Jackson.

"I just pray God have mercy on my family and have mercy on these people," said Jackson.

Sharmeka celebrated her birthday the day before she was killed.
