2 in custody in connection to mass shooting at South Side park: report

Two men are now in custody in connection with last week’s mass shooting at a South Side Park, according to the Chicago Tribune.

3-year old Deonta Howard was among 13-people wounded when gunshots were fired into a crowd watching a basketball game, in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

He’s recovering after surgery, and a family spokesman says he suffered no brain damage.

Police say the men, both 22, were arrested Sunday night in an abandoned building in the 5200 block of South Marshfield Avenue.

No charges have been filed yet.

According to Chicago police, several people of interest are being interviewed in connection and this remains as an ongoing investigation.
