JAMAICA, New York (WABC) -- A section of a Queens street will be renamed on Friday for a teen who was killed by a stray bullet.

14-year-old D'Aja Robinson was fatally hit back in 2013 after she left a friend's birthday party and boarded an MTA bus.

Robinson was an innocent bystander in a dispute involving rival gangs.

The street renaming ceremony for D'Aja Naquai Robinson Way will be held at 10 a.m. at the southeast end of Sutphin Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard.
