CHICAGO (CBS) — Three young men have been charged with the shooting of a woman and a 6-year-old girl in the Far South Side Roseland neighborhood last Friday night.
Angelo Clark, 17, Landon Barker, 16 and Terrence Lynom, 16, have been charged with two counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton.
Six-year-old Quianna Tompkins and a family friend, a 52-year-old woman, were standing on the sidewalk about 7:40 p.m. Friday in the 300 block of West 105th Street when two males started shooting at each other.
The shooting happened at what police said was a memorial picnic for a slain gang member, where Quianna had been brought, a police source said.
A family spokesperson said it was a memorial, but said it was not for a gang member.
The girl was shot in the chest and was listed in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said.
The woman suffered a gunshot wound to the right thigh and was originally in stable condition.
Clark, of the 12100 block of South Lafayette, and Lynom, of the 1800 block of North Luna, were expected to appear in bond court on Wednesday, Simonton said.
