CHICAGO (CBS) -- The FBI is upping the reward for a man wanted in the murder of a seven-year-old Chicago girl.

It's now $25,000 being offered to help track down Devontay Anderson.

Investigators said Anderson fired into a car waiting in a McDonald's drive-thru in Humboldt Park back in April.

Seven-year-old Jaslyn Adams was shot and killed. Her father wounded.

Two other suspects have already been arrested in the case.

Devontay Anderson, 21, faces a federal charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in Jaslyn's killing. The charge was filed on April 29, but the complaint was sealed until Wednesday, when federal prosecutors moved to unseal the case, saying the FBI is seeking the public's help in finding Anderson.
