A Chicago man has been charged with murder after allegedly killing a 7-year-old girl who was waiting to be served with her father in McDonald’s drive-thru.

18-year-old Marion Lewis was charged with killing Jaslyn Adams, 7, as she was waiting at the drive-thru in Chicago

Among other counts, Lewis was charged with first-degree murder.

Jasyln was shot and killed as Lewis was allegedly attempting to carjack the family’s vehicle, according to police.

Lewis was trying to evade authorities on the Eisenhower Expressway when he crashed his vehicle just moments before.

Jontae Adams, Jaslyn’s father, was also shot and seriously injured in the incident.

The horrific aftermath was shown in a video uploaded at the time from “Chicago Street Newz."

“They killed a baby,” said a person off-camera.

Chicago police superintendent David Brown said at a press conference:

“You can run, but you can’t hide."

“We are going to bring you to justice for this crime."

"The Adams family deserves nothing less.”

Police said two guns were recovered from Lewis.

The girl’s family reacted to the shooting saying, “it just don’t make no sense."

Lawanda McMullen, Jasyln's grandmother, said:

“It just don’t make no sense that a 7-year-old baby lost her life in this McDonald’s driveway. Seven-year-old."

"Six bullets riddled her little body because someone did a cowardly act.”

Other suspects may have been involved in the shooting, authorities said.

“At this point, [Lewis] was involved in the murder of Jaslyn Adams. That’s our specific statement, and that’s the way you should word it,” Brown said in the news conference.

Brown said details about how officials captured Lewis will not be provided.

“We’re limited in what we can say because we have other offenders to bring in on this horrific crime."

"But I will say the hard work of Area Four detectives and collaboration not only with suburban department officers as well as our district officers and a lot of technology has got us to this point,” Brown said.

“But we’re not done.”
