    When Tara Correa-McMullen was 14, she got the kind of big break that aspiring actors long for — a recurring role on the TV show "Judging Amy."

    She played a former gang member who over the course of the season is urged by the show's main character to turn her life around. At the end of the season, however, her character is killed in prison.

    Last week, Tara, 16, was hanging out with friends in front of an apartment complex in Inglewood when she was fatally shot. Police described her as the innocent victim of a gang-related shooting.

    Truth is stranger than fiction sometimes. I don't know the actress or the shows she was in, but it is certainly ironic she was killed this way.

    She was one of my favorites from this show, it is so very sad that this happened to her!Her character on the show was a tough gang member, but still a sweet girl underneath it all..Amy (Judge) took her under her wing and tried to help and then she was killed in juvinile detention..it is so sad and shocking that this happened.
