Fugitive accused of fatally shooting 7-year-old girl may be in Minnesota

The FBI is seeking Devontay Anderson.

A fugitive suspected of fatally shooting of a 7-year-old girl in Chicago may be in Minnesota or Wisconsin, the FBI says. 

Devontay Anderson, 22, of Illinois, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the killing of the girl in Chicago on April 18. 

The FBI says Anderson and an associate are accused of firing into a vehicle carrying the girl and her father as they waited in a drive-thru at a restaurant in Chicago. 

The girl was hit several times and died. Her father survived, the FBI says. 

Anderson was charged with first-degree murder on April 26 and a state warrant was issued for his arrest. A federal arrest warrant was issued on April 29 after he was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
