7-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed in Drive-Thru at Homan Square McDonald's

No offenders were in custody Sunday evening, police said.

A 7-year-old girl was fatally shot Sunday afternoon and a second person sustained gunshot injuries while sitting inside a vehicle at a McDonald's drive-thru in Chicago's Homan Square neighborhood, police said.

The shooting was reported at 4:18 p.m. at the McDonald's located at 3200 West Roosevelt Road, near the intersection of South Kedzie Avenue. According to Chicago police, both victims were inside the vehicle when they "heard gunshots and felt pain."

The 7-year-old, who sustained multiple gunshot wound, was taken by Chicago police officers to Stroger Hospital where she was pronounced dead. She was identified as Jaslyn Adams, of Oak Park, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

The other victim, a 29-year-old man, was shot in the torso and taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition. It wasn't immediately clear if he was related to the young girl.

The McDonald's where the shooting occurred was cordoned off with police tape following the shooting, and detectives appeared to be focusing on a car parked in the drive-thru.

No offenders were in custody Sunday evening, police said.

Authorities haven't said what led up to the shooting.
