2 charged in shooting that injured 13 in Back of the Yards
Two men have been charged in last week’s mass shooting at a South Side park.
20-year-old Kewane Gatewood and 21-year-old Byron Champ are both accused of attempted murder.
Officials saying while the men played a role in the shooting neither is believed to be a shooter and the investigation continues.
13 people, including a 3-year-old boy, were shot in Chicago’s Back of the Yard’s neighborhood last Thursday.
An assault-style rifle with a high-capacity magazine was used in the shooting, which appears to be gang-related, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Friday.
