BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Family members have identified the victim in a deadly shooing that happened Thursday night on Hewitt Avenue as Dominique Maye. Her step father says that she was inside the home, on her computer, just before 9 p.m., when bullets started flying.
Detectives believe the shooter used an assault weapon to fire more than a dozen shots at the Buffalo home.
Kena Jackson, a neighbor, said, "I was pulling up and the cops were pulling up and my mom was screaming come in the house, come in and we didn't know what was going on."
Jackson says she knew the young girl's family but didn't know Dominique very well. She says she spent a lot of time inside the house.
Jackson has been here over a year and has never seen this type of violence here in this neighborhood.
A neighbor who didn't want to be identified said, "It was right close to our house so that could have hit ya know, my niece and my little brother was in the house, it could have hit somebody there ya know?"
"I was just worried about what was going on because I heard my father screaming, 'Get in the house!'," the neighbor said.
Family members say that Dominique was a freshman at Riverside High School and was a member of the school track and basketball team.
