At least 13 people were shot in New York City Tuesday, separate from the mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway that left 29 injured.

BRONX, New York (WABC) -- At least 13 people were shot Tuesday, separate from the mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway that left 10 wounded and 19 others injured, as gun violence continues to plague New York City.

One of those shootings was in the Bronx, where police say 23-year-old Sally Ntim -- believed to be an innocent bystander -- was killed by a stray bullet while sitting in a car at Sheridan Avenue and McClellan Street.

Dozens gathered in the Bronx on Wednesday night to remember Ntim.

Ntim was shot in the head just after 8 p.m., and EMS rushed her to NYC Heath and Hospitals/Lincoln where she was pronounced dead.

"I'm still lost," Erica Palmer said. "I'm still stuck for words. I can't believe she's gone."

Palmer helped raise Ntim and said she was like a daughter to her. The 23-year-old had just started a business selling hair products.

"She was a high school graduate, college kid," Palmer said. "She had a future, and it was taken away."

On Wednesday night, the NYPD put out new video that they hope will help solve the crime and find the killer.

The footage shows one of the men who police say took out a gun and started firing at someone else with a weapon.

So far, there are no arrests, and no suspects have been identified.

Police do not believe she was the intended target, and the investigation is ongoing.

Additionally, a 15-year-old girl was shot on Laconia Avenue in the Bronx.

It is unclear if she was the intended target.

She was rushed to an area hospital and is expected to survive.
