Tara Webb, 27, Shot Dead at Her Birthday Party by Her Sister

Young Queens mom Tara Webb was shot dead early Saturday morning at her 27th birthday party in the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City. Cops say her younger sister Melanie Webb, 24, did it and that she also shot Tara's boyfriend, Terrell Carmichael, who survived. Melanie Webb has been charged with murder. The sisters lived together, along with Tara Webb's four-year-old son, Eric.
