Report: Suspect questioned in baby’s shooting death

There is a potential break in the case of a 6-month-old who was shot and killed back in March.

The Sun-Times is reporting a suspect is being questioned by Chicago Police in the Jonylah  Watkins murder.

The baby girl was sitting on her father’s lap inside a minivan near 65th and Maryland when someone opened fire on the vehicle.

Jonylah was hit once and killed.

The family’s pastor says they’re grateful for how hard detectives have worked on the case.

Police have said in the past they think the girl’s father was being targeted by rival gang members.

They are not commenting on the case tonight.
