Cleopatra Pendleton, center with red scarf, is escorted under the shelter where Pendleton's daughter Hadiya  was shot and killed,  during a news conference seeking the public's assistance in finding the gunman Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, in Chicago. Hadiya, 15, who had performed in President Barack Obama's inauguration festivities, was killed in a Chicago park as she talked with friends by a gunman who apparently was not even aiming at her. The city's 42nd slaying is part of Chicago's bloodiest January in more than a decade, following on the heels of 2012, which ended with more than 500 homicides for the first time since 2008. It also comes at a time when Obama, spurred by the Connecticut elementary school massacre in December, is actively pushing for tougher gun laws. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
