On New Year's Eve, Aaliyah Boyer was at her Grandfather's home in Elkton, Maryland. She walked outside to watch fireworks. A bullet struck her in the head. The bullet came from a gun user (police believe blocks away) celebrating New Years by shooting bullets into the air. Aaliyah Boyer died on Jan 3rd, 2013. The shooter is still unknown.
Multiple organs from Aaliyah were donated to save other children.
Update 3/1/2013: Law Enforcement says the bullet that came from the gun that killed Alliyah Boyer was from an AK47 Rifle.
The police say they will have a hard time capturing the shooter since most of these firearms are not registered. If anyone knows who pulled the trigger, please let local police know. If you are the shooter, the family of Aaliyah Boyer knows it was an accident yet will not rest until you come forward. Please contact local police enforcement to turn yourself in. Do the right thing!
