A 7-year-old girl died and her father was wounded after they were shot at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Chicago on Sunday, a report said.
The child, identified by police as Jaslyn, and her 28-year-old dad, Jontae Adams, were in a car outside the fast food restaurant in the city’s Homan Square neighborhood when two gunmen opened fire on them, the Chicago Sun-Times reported, citing police and a worker.
Jaslyn was struck several times in the shooting that occurred at about 4:20 p.m. She was taken to Stroger Hospital, but could not be saved, the newspaper reported.
Her father was hit in the torso and hospitalized in stable condition.
A McDonald’s worker told the publication that two people exited a gray car and began shooting at Adams’ vehicle.
No arrests have been made. Police believe the violence may be gang-related, the report said.
Adams’ mother, Lawanda McMullen, told the Sun-Times that her son called her after the gunfire.
“He said, ‘Ma, come get me. They just shot my baby,’” McMullen said.
She said her granddaughter’s hobbies included dancing and making TikTok videos.
Jaslyn was described as “beautiful” and a “really sweet child,” by her aunt, Tawny McMullen.
