Family of slain teen continues to greive

Funeral arrangements are taking shape to honor the 15-year-old girl shot to death this week at a neighborhood park. Tonight the reward for her killer has been increased to $24,000.

Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed Tuesday in a park in Chicago’s West Kenwood neighborhood.  Police say Pendleton and her friends were not involved in any gang activity, and the shooter may have mistaken the group for a rival gang.

As the Pendleton family grieves over the loss of their only daughter, their friends, mostly fellow alums from Western Illinois University, gathered at a South Loop bar to show their support and raise money for the family. Nathaniel Pendleton, Hadiya’s dad, said there was a lot of love in that room.

Meanwhile, another teen shot in that same incident Tuesday is recovering well. 17 year old Lawrence Sellers took a bullet in the lower portion of his leg. His mother, Tanya, wants the shooter to come forward and take responsibility.
