CHICAGO — Bail was set Wednesday for three teens charged in the shooting that left a 6-year-old girl badly wounded Friday in Roseland.
Angelo Clark, 17, and Terrence Lynom, 16, each were charged Tuesday with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm, according to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office. Later Tuesday, police announced that Ladon Barker, 16, also had been charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm.
Lynom, of the 1800 block of North Luna Avenue; Clark, of the 12100 block of South Lafayette Avenue; and Barker, of an undisclosed address, appeared in bond court on Wednesday. Lynom and Barker were ordered held in lieu of $2.5 million bail each, while Clark was ordered held on $500,000 bail.
Before the shooting, 6-year-old Quianna Tompkins was with family and friends gathered to remember a man shot to death in the same neighborhood five years ago, witnesses said.
Quianna was shot in the chest in the 300 block of West 105th Street about 7:40 p.m. A 52-year-old woman suffered a graze wound.
Quianna was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where her mother, Juannakee Kennedy, said the girl was "fighting for her life."
A nurse who declined to give her name Tuesday said Quianna was in critical but stable condition.
