New Jersey Nursing Student Shot Dead by Her Own Sister: Police

Loved ones are mourning the loss of a New Jersey woman who was shot to death by her own sister in an apparent argument over money, NJ.com reports.

Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, dispatchers in Bergen County received a 911 call about the incident. The call initially reported a stabbing, but when police officers arrived at the Little Ferry home, they found that the victim, 21-year-old Omelly Dominguez, had been shot in the head.

“She’s inside. She’s shot,” Dominguez’s younger brother told the officers, according to court records obtained by PEOPLE.

When officers entered the home, they found Dominguez collapsed on a couch with an apparent gunshot wound to her head. The brother told investigators that he had arrived home after school around 3:40 p.m. and saw Dominguez talking with their 27-year-old sister, Angielly.

“Shortly thereafter, he overheard Angielly and Omelly engage in a verbal disagreement over money, at which point he heard what he believed to be a gunshot,” an affidavit reads.

The brother then walked into the living room and saw “Angielly standing . . . and staring at him” before she walked out of the house, the affidavit states, according to NJ.com.

A doorbell security camera recorded Angielly leaving the home. The New Jersey State Police later arrested her on the New Jersey Turnpike in Cherry Hill, NorthJersey.com reports.

One day before the shooting, Angielly’s boyfriend reportedly told authorities in Florida, where she was living at the time, that she “took all of his firearms and his vehicle, a white Ford Mustang,” PEOPLE reports.

Dominguez graduated from Union City High School and was a nursing student at William Paterson University.

“Her family and friends are absolutely devastated by the sudden loss of their beloved daughter, sister, and friend,” a GoFundMe page reads.

Angielly Dominguez has been charged with first-degree murder, second-degree possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose and third-degree hindering her own apprehension.
