Chicago police on Sunday that said they are questioning two people in the shooting death of a young mother whose sister stood behind President Obama during his speech on gun violence on the same day. Janay McFarlane, 18, was shot to death on Friday night while walking through North Chicago with a friend, who police said may have been the intended target. MacFarland’s death came just hours after her 14-year-old sister, Destini Warren, attended a speech by President Obama decrying the city’s gun violence.
McFarlane's mother, Angela Blakely, said Sunday: "I really feel like somebody cut a part of my heart out."
Blakely said the bullet that killed McFarlane was meant for a friend. McFarlane was supposed to graduate from an alternative school this spring, her mother said, and wanted to go into the culinary arts.
"I'm just really, truly just trying to process it, knowing that I'm not taking my baby home any more," Blakely said.
Among the survivors, Janay MacFarland leaves behind her three-month-old son, Jayden, pictured below in a family photo:
