First Lady to Attend Hadiya Pendleton Funeral

First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to attend the funeral of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton who was gunned down last week in Chicago, according to a White House source.

The FLOTUS will reportedly travel to Chicago on Saturday to attend the service with Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

The King College Prep honors student was fatally shot Feb. 29 while huddling with a group of friends under a canopy at a local park during a rainstorm. Witnesses said an unidentified boy or man hopped a fence, opened fire on the group– striking Pendleton in the back– and then fled the scene. Police say she was not the intended target.
