SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A fatal shooting happened around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. Tierra Newton, 26, was shot and killed while standing on the 100 block of West Corning Avenue. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Newton lives on Bruce Street, near the area of Wednesday's shooting.

Police say they have limited information at this time, but know that a party was going at the time of the shooting and that a lot of people were in the area.

"We believe there are people that may have seen this, maybe people who are out on their porches, it's a very nice night, people who were at the party, people who may have been scared to speak to us directly on the scene, they can call us," said Syracuse Police Sergeant Tom Connellan.

Connellan says all calls made to the police department will be kept confidential. The number to reach them is (315) 442-5222. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
