Hadiya Pendleton Shot Dead In Chicago
Via HUffPo Chicago reports:
A 15-year-old majorette who performed at some of President Barack Obama’s recent inauguration festivities has been shot to death in Chicago.
Police say Hadiya Pendleton was shot in the back Tuesday in a South Side park and died at a city hospital.
Authorities say Hadiya was one of about 12 teenagers sheltering from heavy rain under a canopy when a man jumped a fence, ran toward the group and opened fire. The man fled the scene in a vehicle. No arrests have been made.
Police do not believe Hadiya was the intended target of the shooting. A teenage boy was shot in the leg. Police did not release his name.
Hadiya belonged to the King College Prep High School band, which performed at several inaugural events in Washington, D.C.
Such a beautiful young lady. Condolences to her family, may they find some solace in the loveliness she brought to them and others in her short life.
Rest In Peace to a young life ended entirely too soon. When will the senseless violence end???
