Death in Blue America: Chicago Woman killed after attending anti-violence fundraiser

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
A woman who had just attended an anti-violence fundraiser was shot to death in a car outside her West Pullman home Friday night.

Leonore Draper, 32, was found shot inside the car in the 11500 block of South Laflin Street about 10:30 p.m., authorities said.

Family members on Saturday said they were in shock and confirmed Draper had just attended A Charitable Confection, a fundraiser on the Near South Side to raise money for teen anti-violence group Project Orange Tree. The group was formed by King College Prep students after the shooting death of Hadiya Pendleton last year.
