Girl who performed at Obama’s inauguration shot

Hadiya Pendleton, a teenager who performed at President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony last week, was gunned down in Chicago, a media report said. Pendleton (15) was shot dead while hanging out with friends after school, reported NBC News. She had performed with the King College Prep school band at Obama’s inauguration.

She was standing under a canopy in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park when a gunman came from an alley, opened fire and fled, police said.

She was shot in the back but managed to run about a block before she collapsed. She died at a hospital.
