The 29-year-old father was shot in the torso and is still hospitalized in serious condition. Police rushed Jaslyn Adams to the hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds but was pronounced dead.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot claimed she was “heartbroken and angered” over the shooting and tweeted, “This unthinkable act of violence has no place here. The epidemic of gun violence cutting our children’s lives short cannot go on.”
Since the incident, reports indicate that a list of PPP loan recipients may have contributed to the father being targeted in the shooting. Authorities reportedly released a list of names and addresses of people who allegedly scammed for PPP loans in other people’s names.
The male shooting victim reportedly made a Facebook post about finding his name on the list one hour before the shooting occurred.
“Opps prolly downstairs waiting on me,” he wrote.
Police have not issued a comment on the possible connection between the PPP loan list and Sunday’s shooting. Authorities are still searching for the shooter.
