A second suspect has been charged in reference to the homicide of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams (Replace)
According to @chicagotribune, a second man has been charged with the murder of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams.
Demond Goudy, 21, was arrested Monday evening. He is now reportedly charged with a first degree crime and a first degree crime of attempted murder.
Police arrested their first suspect, Marion Lewis, 18, and he is charged with first degree murder, attempted murder, and other police-related charges related to murder and persecution.
As previously reported, Jaslyn and her father were in the driveway at McDonald’s when she was shot dead. Lewis was arrested by police after he was shot while leading police on a chase.
Lewis is also accused of attempting to steal another family’s car that police said had stopped in traffic on the expressway. Illinois State Police officials say the man shot the police before CPD returned fire and slapped him in one of his arms.
He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and police say he will survive.
“We prayed for justice and we got it,” said Tawny McMullen, Jaslyn’s aunt.
Jaslyn’s family heard of the police persecution but did not realize that it was related to Jaslyn’s investigation.
“OK, they caught one,” said McMullen. “But get the rest of them. I’m pretty sure there are more out there. Get the rest of it. “
Police said at least two guns were found in the suspect’s car, although investigators have not yet said whether they were used in Jaslyn’s murder.
“So cute. Such an angel. She was an angel, harmless,” said Jaslyn’s aunt.
Brown said Chicago police believe Jaslyn’s father was the target of the shooting.
“Choose to live the life of crime, get into conflict with others who live the life of crime, and bring your precious babies into the car. This has happened over and over again. That’s more than enough is enough, ”said Brown.
