A teenage girl–an honor student who had just performed at President Obama’s inaugural–was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended.
CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports the victim, 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, was taking shelter from the rain with a group of 10 to 12 teenagers under a canopy in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park on the 4500 block of South Oakenwald Avenue around 2:30 p.m., when someone jumped a fence, ran up to them, and opened fire.
Just days before, Hadiya performed with her high school band at President Obama’s inauguration.
“She is what is best in our city. A child going to school, who takes a final exam, who had just been to the inaugural,” Emanuel said. “You look at her, you look at how she talked about her future. She took her final exams. She had dreams. And this gang-banger, this punk took that away from Cleopatra. They took it away from Hadiya. And in my view, they took it away from the city of Chicago.”
The park is near King College Prep High School — where Pendleton was an honor student, volleyball player, and majorette.
Remember the lady who died after serving Obama breakfast at her restaurant….
A restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio who served breakfast to President Barack Obama on Friday morning died hours later of a heart attack, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
Josephine “Ann” Harris, 70, complained of “fatigue and a tingling feeling” shortly after Obama left her family diner, Ann’s Place. She was taken by ambulance to Akron General Medical Center, and by 11:18 a.m., she was pronounced dead from an apparent heart attack.
Harris met — and hugged — Obama just after 8:00 a.m., when he stopped in unannounced for breakfast. Harris’ sister, Frankie Adkins, told the Beacon Journal that meeting Obama was likely a “highlight” for her sister since she was a big fan.
“She loved Obama,” said Adkins. The newspaper notes that Harris was “ecstatic” earlier in the morning when a Beacon Journal reporter spoke to her about meeting with the president.
