On Saturday, police in Illinois released surveillance images apparently showing the getaway car used in last month’s fatal shooting of a 13-year-old girl.
On June 20, Amaria Jones was reportedly shot in the neck by a stray bullet that pierced through the window of her first-floor Chicago apartment. Chicago police released surveillance images showing a silver Infiniti G35 or G37 — which they alleged someone inside fired shots at people on Jones’ front porch.
Jones was reportedly shot and killed by a stray bullet as she showed her mother a dance she learned on TikTok, a social media platform. Jones was inside her apartment when she was shot; two boys, ages 15 and 16, were reportedly wounded on the front porch.
The two teens reportedly told police they were sitting outside the home when a man spotted a red laser pointing at him and gunshots rang out. Police said the 16-year-old was shot in the left leg, while the 15-year-old was shot in the lower back. Both teens survived.
Jones’ apartment is located in the 1000 block of North Leclaire Avenue. Police said the suspect fled from the west alley of Leclaire Avenue towards Thomas Street, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
WBBM reported that the vehicle involved in the deadly shooting had tinted windows and no front license plate. A motive in the fatal shooting remains unclear. No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information regarding the June 20 shooting should call the Chicago Police Department at 312-746-8252.
