CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A makeshift memorial for a 17-year old girl shot and killed outside a Crown Heights apartment building grew on Thursday.
Flowers, balloons and candles lined the entrance to the spot on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights where 17-year old Shayma Roman lost her life around 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday. Police say Roman was not the intended target.
Roman was with her sister outside another relative’s apartment at the time of the shooting, relatives said. At least two men opened fire toward the girls and a bullet struck Roman in the face, police said.
