A West Side gang member is charged in the shooting death of a 7-year-old girl.

Chicago Police say 26 year old Jerrell Dorsey is the man who murdered Heaven Sutton in front of her Austin neighborhood home last week.

Dorsey is charged with one each of first degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm.  He will appear in bond court Sunday.

Sutton was helping her mother sell candy to neighborhood kids at a stand set up outside their home Wednesday night when two men approached the group began shooting. The young girl was shot in the back and taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she was pronounced dead less than an hour after being shot.

The second offender remains at large.

“I still feel sick because they have someone in custody, but they don’t have both of them,” said Sutton’s Mother Ashake Banks. “I want both of them, not just one of them. So I’m still mad and I’m still upset.”

“I still feel sick because they have someone in custody, but they don’t have both of them,” said Sutton’s Mother Ashake Banks. “I want both of them, not just one of them. So I’m still mad and I’m still upset.”

Her death raised questions about police effectiveness against gangs. Mayor Rahm Emanuel was visibly upset over Sutton’s death during a non-related press conference while answering a reporter’s question about his gang strategy.

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy also issued a statement Saturday afternoon announcing a person had been taken into custody and included a message for Banks.

“While no family should have to endure the horrific and senseless loss of a young child, it is my hope that it will give Heaven’s family some measure of solace to know we will not rest until we bring the person responsible for this tragedy to justice. We must do everything we can as a city and a Department to ensure that we do not lose another child to violence.”
