A 7-year-old girl was shot and killed in a fast-food drive-thru on Chicago’s West Side afternoon, police said.
police said the girl’s father remains hospitalized in serious condition.
Family identified the girl as Jaslyn Adams. The girl and her 29-year-old father were in a car at the McDonald’s drive-thru near Roosevelt Road and Kedzie Avenue at about 4:15 p.m. when they were both shot.
A McDonald’s employee said two men jumped out of another car, ambushing the family and firing repeatedly into their car. Police said more than 50 gunshots were fired
A 7-year-old girl is dead and a 29-year-old man injured after a shooting in Homan Square.
Adams was struck multiple times in the body and the man was struck in the torso, police said.
Adams’ grandma, Lawanda McMullen, got the phone call from her son moments after the gunfire.
“I was frantic and he was frantic. He could not breathe on the phone. He just kept saying, ‘mom, come get me, they just shot up my baby,'” she described.
Police said officers already at the scene placed the badly injured little girl in the back of their SUV and raced toward the nearest hospital.
The girl was transported to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
“They said she came in with no pulse,” Lawanda said. “[They] opened up her chest and did chest compressions but could not get her back.”
The family believes the child was caught in the middle of a gang related shooting.
Police have not yet said if the girl’s father, Jontae Adams, was the target, but according to records obtained, Jontae is currently on parole from Statesville Penitentiary for a drug case.
The 29-year-old father’s long criminal history would make him well known to Chicago narcotics and gang investigators, since he’s been charged and convicted with multiple class x felonies.
Now, her family is in mourning.
