A Chicago man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday for his role in the fatal 2009 shooting of a 9-year-old girl in Englewood.

Davionne Whitefield

Davionne Whitefield, 22, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder for his involvement in the shooting that killed Chastity Turner, according to a statement from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.

Judge William Lacy handed down the sentence Thursday during a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courts Building.

Whitefield, a Gangster Disciple, was engaged in a turf war over drug territory with gang rivals, according to prosecutors.

Chastity was washing her dogs along with family members outside her father’s home in the 7400 block of South Stewart on June 24, 2009, when three men drove a stolen van down the street and opened fire, according to prosecutors.

Chastity was shot in the back and died of her injuries, authorities said. Her father and two other men were also shot multiple times.

Whitefield was arrested and charged when witnesses identified him, authorities said.

Whitefield’s co-defendants, Ronald Henderson, 34, and Kevin Stanley, 31, were previously convicted of first-degree murder and each was sentenced to 100 years in prison.
