Just like Albany detectives, Debby and Gary Eley are searching for answers. Dominique Eley, 27, was gunned down Sunday afternoon on North Pearl Street in what police are calling a “probable intentional shooting”.

The murder scene in front of the Ida Yarborough Apartments has been turned into a sidewalk memorial for Dominique, with candles, photographs, and other personal mementos.

According to her parents, Dominique was a Black entrepreneur. She was a hip-hop artist who performed shows from Albany to Miami.

She also created youth advocacy programs and gave back to the community in many ways. Her dream was to own her own production company someday.

Her parents say they have no reason to believe she had any enemies who would want to end her life so violently.
