According to @chicagotribune, a second man has been charged for the murder of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams.
Demond Goudy, 21, was arrested Monday night. He is now charged with one felony count of first-degree murder and a felony count of attempted first-degree murder, according to reports.
Police arrested their first suspect Marion Lewis, 18, and he is charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, and other charges related to the murder and police chase.
As previously reported, Jaslyn and her father were in the drive-thru at McDonald’s, when she was shot and killed. Lewis was apprehended by police after he was shot, while leading police on a chase.
Lewis is also accused of attempting to carjack another family’s car that had stopped in the traffic on the expressway, according to police. Illinois State Police officials say the man shot at police before CPD returned fire, striking him in one of his arms.
He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to survive, according to police.
“We prayed for justice and we got it,” said Tawny McMullen, Jaslyn’s aunt.
Jaslyn’s family heard about the police pursuit as it happened, but didn’t realize it was related to Jaslyn’s investigation.
“OK, they caught one,” McMullen said. “But go get the rest of them. I am quite sure there is more out there. Get the rest.”
Police said there were at least two guns found in the suspect’s car, though investigators have not yet said whether they were used in Jaslyn’s murder.
“So sweet. Such an angel. She was an angel, harmless,” Jaslyn’s aunt said.
Brown said Chicago police believe Jaslyn’s father was the target of the shooting.
“Deciding to live the life of crime, getting in conflict with others who live the life of crime, and putting your precious babies in the car with you. This has happened time after time. This is beyond enough is enough,” Brown said.
