    Family, Friends Mourn Girl, 14, Shot on Queens Bus

    Family and friends said farewell Friday to the 14-year-old girl shot and killed on a Queens bus as she headed home from a sweet 16 party.

    Daja Robinson was hit in the head by a bullet police believed was shot from the street in a gang dispute in South Jamaica last weekend. She was on the Q6 bus.

    "It's a very sad situation," family friend John Sims said after the funeral. "I hope we learn from this."

    Police are questioning a 16-year-old boy in the shooting, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Thursday.
