Teen shot hours after sister attends Obama gun violence speech

Hours after her younger sister stood behind President Barack Obama during his gun violence speech last week, an Illinois teen died when a bullet found her in a North Chicago alley.

Two people were being questioned Monday as police worked to piece together the final moments of 18-year-old Janay McFarlane, who left behind a 3-month-old son.

    Why is a teenager in an alley?
    Why does an 18-year-old female have a 3-month-old child?
    Why is she surrounded by people with guns?
    This is not a gun problem: it's a lifestyle problem.

    @jif many questions to a question, why we are ruled by the Government when history shows they were all evil and eventually collapsed. GOD path to salvation was stopped and he was killed by Government rulers. On his second coming no Government can kill him again.

      "GOD" and "salvation" were not necessary for the teenager to stay out of the alley, and to avoid having a baby at that age.
