As family and friends said goodbye Friday to a teenage girl shot to death on a Queens bus, police are still said to be questioning a person of interest in her killing.

A funeral for D'aja Robinson, 14, was held Friday morning at the Greater Allen AME church in Queens.

Police say Robinson was sitting on a Q6 bus in South Jamaica Saturday night when shots were fired at the bus.

A bullet came through the window and hit her in the head.

Mourners who gathered say the violence needs to ends.

"These guns gotta get off these streets. These babies are dying," said a family friend.

"She was 14 years old, 14 years old. No parent, no grandparent should have to bury their child. Noone should have to do that," said another family friend.

D'aja's mother did not speak to the large crowd who stood on line to get a glimpse of the girl, but gave a sign of appreciation for the support.

She and other family members wore white and purple because those were D'aja's favorite colors.

Police say the shooting may have gang related, but they do not think Robinson was the intended target.
