CHICAGO (CBS) — The man accused of using an AK-47-style pistol in the fatal shooting of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams more than three months ago was ordered held without bail on Wednesday, two days after he was captured on a fugitive warrant.
Cook County prosecutors said 22-year-old Devontay Anderson fled to Florida after the shooting, but later returned to Chicago. He was arrested by the FBI on Monday, and made his first court appearance Wednesday on charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder in the April 18 shooting that left Jaslyn dead and her father seriously wounded.READ MORE: Board President Toni Preckwinkle Marks 11,000 COVID Death In Cook County
Two other men, 21-year-old Demond Goudy and 18-year-old Marion Lewis, also have been charged for their roles in the fatal shooting.
Lewis was arrested four days after the shooting, after he was shot and wounded by police and apprehended as he tried to carjack a family on the Eisenhower Expressway following a pursuit.
Goudy was arrested on April 26 as detectives were conducting a follow-up investigation in the 1500 block of South Springfield Avenue in Lawndale. SWAT units were called in for help, and Goudy later came out on his own.
Goudy and Lewis also are being held without bond.
Anderson, Goudy, and Lewis are accused of attacking Jaslyn and her father as they were sitting in an Infiniti sedan in a McDonald’s drive-thru in the 3200 block of West Roosevelt Road. Anderson and Goudy are accused of opening fire on the Infiniti while Lewis waited in the getaway car. Jaslyn was rushed to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her father, Jontae Adams, was seriously wounded, but survived.READ MORE: Woman In Serious Condition After House Fire In Portage Park
According to Cook County prosecutors, surveillance video from the McDonald’s shows a silver Audi with a paper license plate and distinctive discoloration pull up behind the car with Jaslyn and her father.
Two men with hoodies covering their faces jumped out of the car and shot into Adams’ car before getting back into the Audi, prosecutors said. When the victims’ car began to move forward again, the two men again got out of the Audi and fired into the victims’ vehicle again before getting back in the car and speeding away.
Prosecutors said Lewis stayed in a car while Anderson and Goudy got out and opened fire, and also said he had threatened Jaslyn’s father before.
Authorities have said Anderson opened fire on the Infiniti with an AK-47-style pistol, while Goudy, the other gunman, opened fire with a Glock pistol. At Anderson’s bond hearing, Cook County prosecutors described the gun Anderson used as an AK-47 with a banana clip, and said police recovered 28 shell casings from that gun.
