Tara Correa-McMullen has been shot to death.
The actress was only 16-years-old. She has been killed in a gang shooting, as she stood outside an apartment complex in Inglewood, a suburb south of Los Angeles, California on October 21. Two other people were wounded in the same incident.

Although no suspects have been identified, the police believe the shooting was gang-related, according to femalefirst.co.uk

"She may have just been at the wrong place at the wrong time", Sergeant Steve Overly said.

Devora Correa and Thomas McMullen paid tribute to their daughter on October 28, talking about Tara's friendly nature, stating she would socialize with everyone "whether they were a grip or a caterer".

Tara Correa-McMullen made her debut at the age of 14, when she won the role of a gang member on the TV show "Judging Amy." She played the part of the gang member GRACIELA in eight episodes of "Judging Amy" and had made her big screen debut earlier this summer in REBOUND, opposite Martin Lawrence.
