‘Any sum of money wouldn’t make the group protected’: Alleged shooter of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams denied bail

CHICAGO – One of the suspected shooters, 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams, was denied bail Wednesday after being recently arrested by the FBI.

The judge cited a voluminous youth admitted for the accused shooter Devontay Anderson and concerns that he might leave town to deny bail.

Anderson was arrested by the FBI on Monday in Chicago, according to court records. He is the last murder suspect to be arrested.

Jaslyn Adams, 7

He is accused of using an AK-47 style and firing multiple shots at the vehicle Jaslyn Adams, 7, had with her father Jontae in a McDonald’s driveway on the West Side.

“Money wouldn’t make the community safe. Any amount of money wouldn’t make the community safe, ”the judge said when they refused Anderson’s bail.

The FBI initially listed a $ 10,000 reward for his prisoners and said he had ties to the Miami area. Last month, the reward was increased to $ 25,000.

It took nearly three months to track down Anderson after the first two suspects, Marion Lewis, 18) and Demond Goudy, 21, were arrested days after the shooting.

Goudy was taken into custody and charged with first degree murder charges and attempted murder charges. Prosecutors said Goudy allegedly jumped out the passenger seat and fired a .40-caliber firearm several times at the vehicle in which Adams and her father were located.

Authorities believe Lewis was driving the vehicle that Anderson and Goudy used to fire at Jaslyn and her father. The 18 year old has been charged in her murder. He was arrested on the Eisenhower after allegedly stealing a car, which resulted in his being shot by officers.

Jaslyn’s grandmother, Lawanda McMullen, was concerned that the police would not be able to track down her killers.

“When it first happened I thought she was another case on the shelf. But when they got the first two, I was pretty hopeful that they’d get the third, ”she said.

Anderson is due to appear in court on August 9th.
