Chicago - First Lady Michelle Obama is heading to the Windy City to attend the funeral of a 15 year-old girl shot dead on her way home from school.
Hadiya Pendleton was killed at a city park last week. The honor student and band member performed at the President's Inauguration in Washington, D.C. last month. One of President Obama's senior advisors and the Education Secretary are expected to attend.
They all used to live in Chicago.
Police say they don't believe Pendleton was the intended target. She was walking with other teens who may have been involved in gangs. Pendleton was not a member of any gang.
