A Chicago teenager was shot and killed just hours after her sister sat on a stage behind Barack Obama, listening to the president appeal for tighter gun controls.
Janay McFarlane, 18, died from a gunshot would to the head following an incident shortly before midnight on Friday, Lake County coroner Thomas Rudd told the Chicago Sun-Times.
At the event, the president was speaking about gun violence and gun control.
One of these days we’ll stop talking about gun violence, and we’ll stop holding symbolic congressional votes, and we’ll actually get serious about stopping the proliferation of firearms in America. I have a feeling it’s going to take a long, long time.
