Teen who performed at Obama event killed in daylight shooting

A Chicago teenager who performed at President Barack Obama's inauguration has been killed in a daylight shooting on the city's notorious South Side.

Hadiya Pendleton (15), pictured, was murdered days after appearing in the King College Prep school drill team at the event. Police said it was unlikely she was the intended target. A 16-year-old boy was also shot, but survived.
