From Fox News:
A McDonald’s employee who asked not to be named told the Chicago Sun-Times that two people got out of a gray car in the drive-thru and started shooting at Adams’ car.
An on-scene police unit transported the father and daughter to John Stroger Hospital where she was pronounced dead. The father is in serious condition, police said.
The exact circumstances leading up to the shooting remain unclear. Chicago’s Fox 32 showed the McDonald’s parking lot cordoned off with tape.
No suspects are in custody, and area detectives are investigating, Chicago police told Fox News.
Jaslyn’s aunt, Tawny McMullen, said her niece was “beautiful” and a “really sweet child.” She added that her daughter and Jaslyn were best friends.
