Emily Fitzpatrick, 17, was killed Friday night in a dispute that arose at a local house party on Cedar Drive.

The girl was attending the party with friends when a fight broke out between two rival groups.

Emily Fitzpatrick was an innocent bystander in the argument, but it was the innocent that paid the price when the fight got out of hand.

A shot was fired, by accident, it was later reported, but that single shot was all it took to turn a dispute into a nightmare.

Emily Fitzpatrick passed away in hospital within an hour of the accidental shooting, at 1:27 am on June 15th.

A memorial for the Cedar Secondary School student is planned for Thursday.
