CHICAGO — A second man was charged Tuesday in the murder of Jaslyn Adams, the 7-year-old shot while sitting in a car with her father in a West Side McDonald’s.

Demond Goudy, 21, was charged with first degree murder and attempted murder after being arrested at 7:15 p.m. Monday. 

Police investigating the 7-year-old’s murder called in SWAT teams Monday night in the 1500 block of South Springfield Avenue. Goudy eventually exited a residence on his own and was placed into custody.

Jaslyn Adams was shot and killed April 18 while in a car with her father at a McDonald’s drive thru in the Homan Square neighborhood. Authorities said a silver Audi pulled up and two men got out, one carrying a Drako, an AK-47 type of gun, and the other brandishing a .40 caliber gun. They opened fire with at least 45 bullets, ambushing Jaslyn and her father, prosecutors said.

Jaslyn was shot six times and died. Her father, Jontae Adams, was also shot but has since been released from a hospital.

One man, 18-year-old Marion Lewis, has already been charged in connection with the crime. Prosecutors say he was the driver of the Audi. Goudy is believed to be one of the shooters, according to a police source. The second shooter was still at large Tuesday night.

At Sunday’s bond hearing for Lewis, prosecutor Kevin DeBoni said one of the shooters threatened Jontae Adams via social media in the past. 

Last week, Jaslyn’s grandmother and Adams’ mother, Lawanda McMullen, told Block Club Chicago she believed the shooting stemmed from an argument on social media and was possibly gang-related.

In bond court Wednesday, Goudy’s attorney asked for and received a continuance. His bond hearing is now scheduled for Friday.
