2 charged in Chicago park shooting that wounded 13
CHICAGO (AP) - Two men have been charged in connection with a shooting last week at a Chicago park that injured 13 people, including a three-year-old boy, Chicago officials announced on Monday night.
Authorities say Bryon Champ, 21, and Kewane Gatewood, 20, were charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in the shooting on Thursday at Cornell Square Park on Chicago's southwest side.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said that while the two played significant roles in the shooting, neither is believed to have pulled the trigger.
"Chicago Police detectives continue to work tirelessly to solve this case and hold the criminals who committed this senseless act of violence last Thursday night responsible for their actions," Mr McCarthy said in a statement. "These charges are just the beginning, and this investigation remains ongoing at this time."
