Some of the 911 calls made the day Chicago teenager Hadiya Pendleton was shot to death at a South Side park have been released.

The 15-year old was killed in January about a week after performing at the inaugural activities in Washington. She was a student at King College Prep and was at the park with friends.

Her death put Chicago violence in the national spotlight.

911 Caller: I just heard shots fired 44th, Oakenwald. Male black in a blue jacket about 5'8" in a white Nissan. He's a passenger, he had a blue jacket. He was just shooting in the alley over here at 44th & Oakenwald.

Two suspects, Michael Ward and Kenneth Williams, have been charged in her death. Prosecutors say she was not the intended target.
