Liberty City, Florida – A vigil was held in memory of Elizabeth Level in Liberty City, Florida, in front of her residence, when friends, family, and neighbors gathered to pay their respects.
On Friday night in Liberty City, a woman who was 85 years old was killed while sitting on the front porch of her home on the 1000 block of 52nd Street. She had been shot.
