2 more arrests in slaying of Chicago teen

CHICAGO — Chicago Police say they've made two more arrests in the shooting death of a 14-year-old girl — including the original owner of the gun.

In a statement Thursday, police say 34-year-old Robert Jones' handgun wasn't stolen, but say he sold it illegally. He's charged with felony disorderly conduct, filing a false police report and illegally selling a weapon.

Thirty-two-year-old Vandetta Redwood is charged with mob action and obstruction of justice. She's accused of failing to call police to stop the fight that ended with Endia Martin's death. She's also accused of impeding the investigation by denying she was at the scene.

It wasn't clear if they had attorneys.

A 14-year-old girl is charged with murder for Monday's shooting along with her uncle, who is suspected of providing her the weapon.
