Man charged in 7-year-old girl's death in Chicago

A 26-year-old suspected gang member has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery in the shooting death of a 7-year-old girl

The Associated Press

CHICAGO — A 26-year-old suspected gang member has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery in the shooting death of a 7-year-old girl who was gunned down while selling snow cones near her house last week.

Police say Jerrell Dorsey of Chicago was taken into custody Friday night and charged early Sunday. He appeared in court later Sunday, where a judge ordered him held without bail.

Heaven Sutton was with her mother Wednesday night when police say someone walked up to another group of people and opened fire down the street. The girl was struck by a stray bullet as she ran away.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Dorsey's lawyer, Eric Dunham, said Dorsey was in the area when the girl was shot but was not the gunman.
