CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Two teenage boys were ordered held on $2.5 million bonds Wednesday for allegedly shooting a bicycle-riding 6-year-old girl and a middle-aged woman attending a memorial barbecue for a slain man on the Far South Side.

Terrence Lynom, Ladon Barker and Angelo Clark were all arrested on attempted murder and aggravated battery charges for disposing of a weapon used in Friday night's shooting, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Clark, 17, a purported gang murder, was ordered held on a $500,000 bond.

All three teens made their way to the front-yard barbecue in the 300 block of West 105th Street before Lynom, 16; and Barker, 15, opened fire, according to authorities.

Quianna Tompkins was shot in the chest as she rode her bicycle just west of the barbecue and 52-year-old Lisa Travis, Quianna's family friend, was hit in the leg.

Quianna remained in critical condition Wednesday at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Cook County prosecutors said. Travis has been release from the hospital.

When the gunfire erupted, family and friends were celebrating the life of Travis' nephew Brandon Snipe, who was gunned down in the same neighborhood in 2008, she said Wednesday.

A police source told the Sun-Times that Snipe was a documented gang member—an allegation Travis and other family members dispute.

Friday's shooting was captured on surveillance cameras and witnesses identified the three teens as the youth walking toward barbecue and specifically fingered Lynom and Barker as the gunmen, Assistant State's Attorney Jennifer Dillman said.

Clark, of the 12100 block of South Lafayette Avenue, and Lynom, of the 1800 block of North Luna Avenue, made admissions to police and were arrested on Monday, Dillman said.

But Lynom's attorney Karla Fiaoni told Judge Donald Panarese Jr. that her client never told police anything.

Barker, of the 10600 block of South Wabash Avenue, was arrested Tuesday.

Lynom was previously found delinquent in a cannabis and weapons case, and Barker has a juvenile record for theft and burglary, Dillman said.
