The New York Daily News report the teen’s name is Daja Robinson, 14, a student at Andrew Jackson High School.

Apparently, Robinson was leaving a friend’s Sweet 16 party at the nearby Onyx Lounge where a small group of girls were boarding the bus when the unidentified shooter fired off up to 10 shots at the idling bus.

One bullet struck the teen passenger in the head. Robinson was rushed to Jamaica Hospital; however,  doctors were unable to save her.

It was unknown what the motive was or whether Robinson was the intended victim.

Police have made no arrests and they said their investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the slaying is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.
