Friends Pay Tribute to Middleburg Teen Killed in Double Shooting

MIDDLEBURG, Fla. --  Tears flowed outside Middleburg High School today where 18-year-old Cami Conley was set to graduate from in just a few weeks.  A deadly double shooting Thursday changed everything.

"A parent should never have to bury their child, but now I have to," said Glen Conley.

Conley said he was just 50 feet away from his daughter when the gunshots rang out killing his only child.

He said, "I wasn't quick enough.  She was dead before I even got to her."

Deputies say Enrique Prim, 50,  shot and killed the teenager.  He was allegedly upset his daughter, Cami's friend, was dating a 20-year-old Middleburg man.  She was also planning to move out and into Cami Conley's home.

"He fired a couple of shots into the boyfriend, his daughter's boyfriend, and then after he was down, he turned the weapon on my daughter," said Glen Conley.

Cami's friends say she was the helper---the type who'd give you a hug even if she didn't know you.
Wearing purple, Cami's favorite color, they gathered together in front of the school to share stories and remember their friend.

"She was full of life," said Billy Randolph.

Randolph was Cami's boyfriend.  He says he had big plans for them, starting with graduation day.

"Right after the ceremony, after the caps were thrown, I was going to get down on one knee and ask her to marry me," said Randolph.

Now he's left with that question unanswered.  But he wears a constant reminder of what could have been.

"She gave me a necklace and a ring and I promised her I would never take it off, and that I will not," said Randolph.

The memories of  friendly encounters with Cami Conley are plentiful in this small group of mourners.  For her father, he finds comfort in knowing his daughter touched so many lives at an early age.

"I have to accept the fact that she is gone.  I wish it wasn't so but I have to face the facts," said Conley.

They all plan to make sure she isn't forgotten.  Friends plan to wear purple Tuesday to honor Cami.  Funeral arrangements for the teen haven't been finalized yet.
