CHICAGO (AP) - Hundreds of people - including Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose - gathered at a church on the city’s South Side to pay their respects to a 14-year-old girl who was shot to death last week.

Rose did not speak to reporters as he entered and left St. Andrew Temple Baptist Church a short time later on Monday morning.

Endia Martin was fatally shot last Monday afternoon. Authorities allege another 14-year-old girl shot Martin during a fight over a boy.

The girl and an uncle who is accused of providing her the handgun used in the shooting have been charged with murder. The original owner of the gun and three others have been charged with lesser offenses in connection with the shooting.
