The King College Prep student was shot while standing under a canopy to avoid the rain. Her shooting sparked a petition asking Michelle Obama to come to the funeral for the girl. Also in attendance with Obama were senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Pat Quinn, the Illinois governor, was also in attendance.



“As a mother and Chicagoan, the first lady was heartbroken to learn of the tragic loss of Hadiya Pendleton due to senseless gun violence,” Kristina Schake, Michelle Obama communications director, told the Tribune Thursday.
