Three teenagers have been charged in the shooting of a woman and a 6-year-old girl Friday night in the Roseland neighborhood.
Angelo Clark, 17; Terrence Lynom, 16, and Landon Barker, 16, have been charged with two counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton.
Six-year-old Quianna Tompkins and a family friend, a 52-year-old woman, were standing on the sidewalk about 7:40 p.m. Friday in the 300 block of West 105th when two males started shooting at each other.
The shooting happened at what police said was a memorial picnic for a slain gang member, a police source said. A family representative said it was a memorial, but it wasn’t for a gang member.
Quianna was shot in the chest and was listed in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said. The woman suffered a gunshot wound in the right thigh.
Clark, of the 12100 block of South Lafayette, and Lynom, of the 1800 block of North Luna, were expected to appear in bond court on Wednesday, Simonton said. It was not known whether Landon would be in bond court Wednesday or Thursday.
