BUFFALO, N.Y. – Police have identified the 17-year-old girl fatally shot Thursday night at Shmerea Nailor, a student who had been attending Burgard High School.
The shooting happened in front of a church at the intersection of Riverside and Ontario last Thursday night.
On Friday, 2 On Your Side met friends and family in mourning over the loss of a young woman they say was taken too soon.
"She was a good kid, and it happened to the wrong person," a friend said.
At Burgard, friends say she played basketball.
Buffalo Interim Superintendent Donald Ogilvie said, "As a school community, we will do all that we can to comfort those students and staff who are most affected by this tragic end to a young life."
Recently, though, friends also say Nailor had been hanging out with the wrong crowd.
