Hadiya Pendelton was shot in the back and killed while standing with friends inside Harsh Park after taking final exams on Tuesday. The-15 year-old student at King College Prep was killed just a week after performing at events for President Obama’s inauguration.
Police believe the shooter mistook the group for a rival gang.
Two reputed gang members have since been charged in the murder of Hadiya. Micheail Ward, 18, and Kenneth Williams, 20, are being held without bond.
