First lady Michelle Obama attends the funeral of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was fatally shot in early February near the Obama family's Kenwood home. 

Pedleton had participated in inaugural festivities just a week before her death. 

"As a mother and Chicagoan, the first lady was heartbroken to learn of the tragic loss of Hadiya Pendleton due to senseless gun violence," said Kristina Schake, communications director for Michelle Obama.
