POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. (WXIA) -- Friends and family members said goodbye to 17-year-old Jordan Davis over the weekend. The teen was killed at Jacksonville gas station in what police said started with a complaint over loud music.

Hundreds of people attended a funeral for Davis in Powder Springs on Saturday afternoon.

It was an emotional service, with Davis' mother, Lucia McBath, leaning on those around her as she said farewell to her son.

Among the mourners at Trinity Chapel was Samantha Williams, who was one of Davis' classmates at Wolfson High School in Jacksonville.

"The last time I spoke to him was Thursday night on Thanksgiving, and it's just so hard because I miss him so much," Williams said.

For many of the Davis' friends and relatives, questions still remain about how his life came to an end. However, they are taking comfort in what they agree was a beautiful sendoff for the teen.

The man charged with shooting Davis says he approached the SUV Davis was sitting in to complain about the music. He told officers he felt threatened and thought someone in the car had a gun, but police did not find a weapon in the SUV.
