CHICAGO -- Mourners gathered at a church on Chicago's North Side for the funeral of a Chicago teacher killed in a drive by shooting.

Cynthia Trevillion was caught in gunfire from a drive by shooting in Rogers Park. Police said she was not the intended target. She and her husband – who were both teachers at the Chicago Waldorf School -- were walking to the Morse CTA station to head to dinner with friends when she was shot in the head.

Over the weekend, friends and students raised nearly $30,000 for her funeral expenses. The people who loved her say her death is an incredible shock.

School was cancelled Monday and Tuesday so students can get grief counseling and pay their respects.

Mourners paid tribute to the Waldorf school teacher at her wake Monday and community residents gathered at the site of the shooting Monday night to talk about safety concerns.

Police are pouring over surveillance video trying to catch her killer.

No one is in custody.
