Chicago man punched woman in the face before opening fire, killing one and injuring another prosecutors

WESTERN SIDE OF CHICAGO – A man has been charged with murder and attempted murder for allegedly opening fire on an argument that escalated into gunfire outside a bowling alley on Chicago’s Near North Side last year, killing one woman and injuring the other.

Prosecutors said in court on Wednesday that Jason McMahan faces charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder, and aggravated battery with a firearm for the April 30 shooting that began with an argument between his current girlfriend and an ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutors claim that Tashawna Anderson, 26, and her sister, 32-year-old Jasmine Anderson, witnessed McMahan and his girlfriend enter the 10pin Bowling Lounge at 330 N. State St. while in attendance at a birthday party.

Anderson allegedly called McMahan’s ex-girlfriend, a 27-year-old woman, who arrived at the bowling alley shortly after but was turned away.

Prosecutors say McMahan’s ex-girlfriend confronted him and his new girlfriend as they walked down Kinzie Street to his car after their bowling game. McMahan’s girlfriend allegedly called the police and drove his car back to the bowling alley with him in the passenger seat.

Prosecutors say a fourth woman, who had taken a gun from her car and hidden it in her purse, met Anderson and his ex-girlfriend outside the bowling alley. Both the FOID card and the concealed carry permit were in the woman’s name and they were valid.

McMahan’s assistant public defender Julie Koehler argued that McMahan “didn’t initiate any of these events” and that it “clearly a case where McMahan has a self-defense case” because his girlfriend had called the police twice.

Asst. State’s Attorney Anne McCord Rodgers argued that the judge had no choice but to deny McMahan bail because he was accused of first-degree murder and firing the fatal shot.

“Judge, there was only one gun fired that night, and it was fired by the defendant,” McCord Rodgers said.McMahan will be back in court on January 24 after Judge Ankur Srivastava accepted his request for a continuance.
