A second man has been charged in the shooting death of 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Homan Square earlier this month.

Demond Goudy, 21, of Homan Square, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the April 18 attack, Chicago police said.

Goudy was taken into custody about 6:50 p.m. Monday after he left a home in the 1500 block of South Springfield Avenue, police said. A SWAT team assisted in his arrest.

Last week, a man suspected to also be involved in the shooting was shot by police while allegedly trying to carjack a family on the Eisenhower Expressway.

Prosecutors said Marion Lewis, 18, was the getaway driver but did not fire any of the shots that killed Jaslyn or wounded her father, 28-year-old Jontae Adams. Lewis was ordered held without bail last weekend.

Jaslyn and her father were in a silver Infiniti about 4:20 p.m. at a McDonald’s, 3200 W. Roosevelt Road, when two gunmen got out of an Audi and fired into the Infiniti, authorities said. One of the shooters was using a “Draco,” AK-47-style assault weapon with a “banana clip,” prosecutors said.

Police would not confirm whether Goudy was believed to be one of the shooters.

Goudy appeared in court Wednesday, where his bond hearing was continued to Friday at the request of his defense attorney.
