Hundreds of people are lined up outside a filled-to-capacity church to pay their respects to a 15-year-old Chicago teen whose death has drawn national attention to the city's gun violence.

Inside the South Side church, mourners are filing past Hadiya (huh-DYE'-yuh) Pendleton's casket, which is covered with flowers.

Police say Pendleton was an innocent victim in a gang shooting last week.

Photos from the honor student's life are being projected on a screen at the front of the sanctuary. One shows her as a newborn swaddled in a pink bassinet. In others, she is smiling with family and friends.

First Lady Michelle Obama, Gov. Pat Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel are expected to attend the service. But Pendleton's family has said the funeral won't be about politics.
