Family and Friends Attend Service for Sylville Smith

Cameras were not allowed inside the Sanctuary for Sylville Smith's funeral at noon on Friday. Reverend Jesse Jackson delivered the eulogy. 

Friends and family lined up outside the Christian Fellowship Church before the service wearing red and white to honor Sylville Smith. 

Smith was armed when he was shot and killed by police nearly two weeks ago. Full details and video of the shooting have not been released but family and friends say that's not the focus of the service, instead it's showing support for the family, "Today is just, I would say a day of peace for this family. It's been hard. This is truly a tragedy," said Caldonia Candler
