2nd man held without bond in fatal shooting of Chicago girl | Nation/World News

CHICAGO (AP) – A second man was detained without bond on Friday when a 7-year-old girl who was sitting in a car outside a McDonald’s in Chicago with her father was shot dead.

Demond Goudy, 21, was in custody of four different offenses at the time of Jaslyn Adams’ shooting on April 18, according to Cook County Assistant State Attorney Kevin Deboni. Goudy is charged with first degree murder and attempted first degree murder in the attack that also injured the girl’s father.

Goudy opened fire on the vehicle the girl and her father were in twice, Deboni Judge David Navarro said during a hearing, adding that Goudy was a threat to the community.

Jaslyn and her father, Jontae Adams, 29, were in a McDonald’s driveway on the west side of Chicago when two men got out of a silver Audi and opened fire. According to the public prosecutor’s office, they got back into the Audi when the victim’s car drove forward. The surveillance video shows the two men getting out of the Audi again and firing more shots into the vehicle before they sped away. The prosecution did not give a motive for the shooting.

Goudy’s attorney, Cathryn Crawford, raised several objections during the hearing, including the disclosure of Goudy’s youth record. She did not provide any positive background information about Goudy after saying she could not follow the procedure.

18-year-old Marion Lewis is also being held without bail for the murder of the girl.
