Chicago teenager shot and killed after sister sat on stage behind Obama during speech on guns: Hours after Destini Warren, 14, attended President Barack Obama's speech against gun violence Friday, her family learned of a terrible irony.



Destini's sister, Janay McFarlane, 18, was the victim of the very thing that the President was condemning at Hyde Park Academy in Chicago.

McFarlane, of the 8900 block of South Lowe Avenue, was visiting friends and family in North Chicago when she was shot on her way to a store in the northern suburb, her family said.



She was pronounced dead at 11:30 p.m., shortly after sustaining a single gunshot wound to her head, according to the Lake County Coroner's office.
