The father of an 18-year-old woman shot to death in North Chicago said Sunday he believes the crime was gang-related and that his daughter was an innocent victim.
Janay McFarlane of the 8900 block of South Lowe in Chicago died Friday night, hours after her sister, Destini, 14, who heard President Barack Obama speak at Hyde Park Career Academy about measures to reduce violence.
Authorities said McFarlane was shot once in the head about 11:30 p.m. Friday. She was found in an alley in the 1300 block of Jackson Street in the Lake County suburb. . .
