    "Judging Amy" Actress Tara Correa-McMullen Shot to Death

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Teen actress Tara Correa-McMullen, who portrays a former gang member in the TV show "Judging Amy," was shot to death amid gang violence, police said.

    Police in Inglewood, a suburb south of Los Angeles, said the actress was shot several times as she stood outside an apartment complex Oct. 21. Two men with her were wounded.

    Correa-McMullen's parents, Devora Correa and Thomas McMullen, wrote in the eulogy that was read at the 16-year-old's funeral on Friday that their daughter made friends with everyone, "whether they were a grip or a caterer."

    No suspects have been identified but the shooting, which is believed to be gang-related, police said.

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

    After filming her first movie, "Rebound," which was released this summer, Correa-McMullen won a recurring role on "Judging Amy" as a former gang member named Graciela.

    If this happened on the 21st, why is the news just getting out on the 29th? And the breadcrumb link at the top of the page says "AP Breaking"?


    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Perhaps because she was a minor, her family didn't want it released to the press until after the funeral?

    I believe that her character was killed in a similar manner on "Judging Amy", which, alas, was canceled. Another "Judging Amy" factoid: Dan Futterman, who played one of Amy's brothers, is the screenwriter of the new film "Capote".

    Considering the circumstances, maybe they were concerned about gangs stirring up trouble at the funeral? There might also have been witnesses to the crime who wanted to attend the funeral, but were concerned about their personal safety.
