CHICAGO (WLS) -- The man who admitted to buying the gun used to kill 7-year-old Jaslyn Adams in a McDonald's drive-thru will not serve any jail time.

A federal judge in Indianapolis sentenced Eric Keys Jr. to two years of probation earlier this month, court records show.

Eric Keys was charged in federal court in Indianapolis with making a false statement during the purchase of a firearm and making a false statement about information required to be kept by a licensed firearms dealer.

Adams was killed, and her father was wounded, in the shooting at the McDonald's at Roosevelt Road and Kedzie Avenue in April of 2021.
