A teenage girl who attended presidential inauguration activities in Washington earlier this month was shot to death at a Chicago park.
Police say 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton was shot in the back Tuesday and later died at University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital. An unidentified boy was shot in the leg and is being treated at the hospital. No arrests have been made.
Hadiya was a majorette with the King College Prep High School band, which performed at several inaugural events. CBS Chicago affiliate WBBM-TV reports she was also an honor student and volleyball player.

But there aren’t supposed to be any guns in Chicago, right?
Sad news. Praying for her family.
“What difference does it make?!?!” /sarc
...and the band played on...
I feel really bad for all of those Chicago teenagers who were killed but didn’t get this much news coverage because they didn’t perform for King Barry at his coronation. What is the story here? That she was murdered or that she attended King Barry’s coronation?
A fitting tribute to the Won!
Prayers for her and her family.
Am I the only one running out of tin foil?
There is more to this story...hope someone with good research ability can investigate a bit for us...
The Facebook pitcure of a “hadiya pendleton” shows the picture of a person that looks like her, but not as clean cut. Think this is another Trayvon Martin situation where the picture used does not reflect the true person.
Media reports seem to insicate that she is not a gang member but a good honor student, yet she was hanging around with gang members!!!
I could believe Barry and/or Rahm were behind this shooting knowing it would make national headlines that they and their fellow gun grabbers could exploit to push their anti-gun agendas.
How pretty she was. Beauty pageant pretty judging from the pic.
Yes, does make you wonder that an honor student would hang around gang bangers.....and they initially called Trayvon Martin an “honor student”. Sounding more like the usual Black Racist BS
His NPR-listening supporters don’t get passionate when it is some black kid. Only cute little white kids evoke their interest, and it makes for “better” TV.
I know many of these people.
Please tell me how you know that she was hanging around with gang members. She has one photo on her facebook that she took of herself against a school wall. That doesn't make her Trayvon Martin.
Shot by one of the ruthless Sons of Obama?
The person on Facebook does not look like her at all. I think it’s someone else with same name
Sounds like she was a great girl.
How are those gun laws working out for ya rahm?
