A teenage boy leaving a party in the Bronx was shot and killed early Sunday morning.The victim's sister, Ederlin Dominguez said, "I want him back."

All she has left of her younger brother, who was her only sibling, is photos, memories, and a broken heart.

She says her brother was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

17-year-old Issi Ariel Dominguez was at a party early Sunday morning in Fordham Heights, when a gun was drawn.

Police say he was fatally shot once in the head, and found on the sidewalk in Tremont, just one block from his home.

Friends and neighbors are convinced the bullet was not meant for Dominguez, and say he paid for someone else's quarrel.

One friend said, "He didn't get into a lot of trouble, he was humble, he was quiet, it's very sad."

"He was just a beautiful person, whenever you needed help, he was there," said another friend.

Two weeks ago, another Bronx teenager was shot in the head. 15-year-old Vada Vasquez, miraculously, is expected to survive.

Sadly, there is no second chance for Dominguez.

His sister cried, "(He was) young, only 17-years-old, he was a kind and sweet guy."

The police precinct is located just one block from Dominguez's home.

So far there are no suspects and no arrests.
