An arrest has been made in Queens shooting that left a woman dead after she kicked out two uninvited guests from a birthday party this weekend.

The shooting happened around 4:23 a.m. during a surprise party on 119th Road in St. Albans Sunday.

Police say 26-year-old Avalisa Morris was shot in the head and stomach.

Morris apparently forced two people to leave after they began to fight. She was then shot through a door she was guarding to keep the party crashers out.

Authorities say 23-year-old O'Neil Mairs is facing several charges, including murder.
