Funeral services were held today for a Roberto Clemente High School senior who was shot to death two weeks ago.

18-year-old Frances Colon was shot in the back while coming out of a store in the 1100 block of North Pulaski on February 15.

Through hugs and tears, the family of  Colon said their final goodbyes.

Colon and  her 16 year old sister Selena shared a room… shared their dreams… a bond, she says cannot be broken by her sudden death.

On February 15th, a single gunshot to the back killed Colon… An honor roll senior at Clemente High School.. As she left a store on north Pulaski.

34 year old Larry Luellen, Jr is charged in the murder.  Police believe Luellen fired the fatal shot during a drug dispute with someone else.  Colon was not the intended target.  Luellen is being held without bond in Cook County Jail.

Colon is the third Clemente high school student killed this school year.
