    What was a 17 year old doing out on the streets of NYC at 1am? please do not take my comment as being negative or hurtful, im just asking a question…

    By no means did she deserve what happened to her, but she also should not have been out.

    Cheyenne babysat for my grandson. She was a caring, loving person. May God rest her soul. Her mother accepted Jesus a few years ago and only through that acceptance can she face this disaster. Her mother will see her again and live with her forever in Heaven. Lisa, hold on to Jesus. He is there with you in all times.

    its sad how many young people we’re losing these days. just a couple of weeks ago my step brother; only 18, was shot to death in Harlem also. too many things are happening to the youth and we need to unite as one to stop these horrible things from happening.

    I’ve known Cheyenne AKA Canela since she was in her mother’s womb! It’s unfortunate that she fell victim to her own enviroment that houses ignorant savages and low lives! R.I.P. Mami your in a much better place! To my girl i’m here for you Love You and Canela Always!

    I am sorry for the tragic loss of this familly especially for her mom. It brings tears to my eyes. No mother every anticipates the loss of a child. What could have been so bad for someone to take such a cowardly act of shooting a child in the back? May justice prevail in this case. My prayers are with the family and friends.

  15. Mc says:

    Listen Sal someone very young lost their life and that is very disrespect of you to say something like that. Cheyenne was an awesome girl with her whole life ahead of her. She was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

  16. K says:

    You dummy a young girl lost her life and another one shot. All you can think about is criticizing a misspelling. Go play in traffic.

  17. hv says:

    RIP Cheyenne, you are an angel! My heart goes out to Lisa and the family. You were such a good girl, very respectful and friendly. You’re now with ur grandparents, they’ll take good care of u now.

  19. SS says:

    Really JJ? A teen is shot dead and another injured, and you notice the spelling and grammar instead? I saw “Wow” on your commnet so I read thinking you are as shocked by me by the shooting…but apparently not…

    1. SS says:

      …oh, excuse me, I misspelled ‘comment’…Iand meant to say ‘as shocked as I am’….I sincerely apologize….LOL!

  20. uh huh says:

    Its clearly a typo you moron..get a life. You have nothing better to do? And for the record, listen is a word, therefore it would not have been picked up by a spell check! I think you may be dumber than a 5th grader!
