Tara Correa-McMullen (May 24, 1989–Oct. 21, 2005) was the stage name of Shalvah McMullen, an actress who was known for a recurring role as gang member Graciela Reyes on the CBS  television series, Judging Amy.  In 2005, she co-starred in her first movie, Rebound,  alongside Martin Lawrence.

Despite a healthy income earned from Judging Amy, Correa-McMullen quit the show for what some suspect was her real-life street gang involvement.

Ironically, the actress was gunned down at the age of 16, outside an apartment complex in Inglewood, Calif., in what police believed to be a gang-related shooting.
