Who was Kyhara Tay ?

The innocent 11-year-old girl who was shot to death in broad daylight by a gunman on a moped has been identified as Kyhara Tay, police said on Tuesday.

Kyhara was visiting a nail salon with a friend just before 5 p.m. Monday, when the shooter opened fire, targeting another man on Westchester Avenue and Fox Street in Foxhurst, authorities said.

Instead, the bullet whizzed down the next block and hit the preteen in the stomach, police said.

Kyhara, who was outside New Kim Nails on Fox Street when she was shot, entered the salon after being shot and passed out, according to witnesses.

“He was right next to me when it happened,” said the girl’s friend, 18-year-old Lillian Johnson.

She “was shot and then she went into the store…like she was trying to run away from the gunshots. She was holding her stomach saying, ‘Ouch!’

Kyhara soon passed out, Johnson said.

The 11-year-old girl entered the room after being shot and passed out.

“She sat in the chair and then started to become unresponsive, like she was leaning over the chair,” Johnson said.

“And then they took her jacket down, they checked her wound [where] she was shot in the stomach and ended up passing out on the ground shortly after.”

The girl was rushed to Lincoln Hospital, where she died.

Fast-motion footage shows the intended target running down the block, trying to outrun a duo on a scooter, before the man riding in the back of the moped opened fire.

Kyhara is the latest young victim of gun violence in the city. Several teens and children have been shot intentionally or as innocent bystanders in the five boroughs in recent months.
