Two men have been charged in the shooting of a 3-year-old boy Friday night.

19-year-old Alger Sanchez and 22-year-old Anton Aseves have been charged with first degree attempted murder and aggravated batter.

Jason Ares was shot in the hip and abdomen late Friday night in front of an apartment in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Chicago’s south side.

Police took the suspects into custody yesterday.

Investigators say the shooting was gang related and Ares was not the intended target.

The boy remains hospitalized but is expected to be ok.

    As you hold your meeting about what to do about the out of control shootings and violence yet another child is shot.
    While I understand that these 2 sad degenrates would’ve probably have shot somebody anyway.

    This doesn’t excuse your lack of leadership, common sense and your inability to at the very least put a significant show of force on the streets though. I wish you would reconsider accepting the govenors offer a month and countless shooting victims ago, of allowing the state police to help you to help us take back our streets from the criminals.

    We need tougher laws and punishments, get caught will an illegal gun and a convicted criminal 10 years , shoot someone 20 years , kill someone life , and maybe these idiots will think twice! Instead they get a slap in the wrist !
