CHICAGO — Two men have been charged in connection to Friday's shooting that left a toddler with critical injuries in Brighton Park.
Around 10:15 p.m., the 3-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk with his mother in the 4400 block of South Sacramento Avenue when two women and two men walked by them, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
When one of the men reached the end of the block, he turned and opened fire, striking the boy in his right hip and abdomen, Alfaro said, citing preliminary information.
The boy was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.
On Saturday, police said three people were in custody.
On Sunday, charges were announced against Alger Sanchez, 19, of the 4100 block of South Francisco Avenue, and Anton Aseves, 22, of the 4000 block of South Albany Avenue.
Both were charged with one felony count of aggravated battery for discharging a firearm, and two felony counts of first-degree attempted murder.
They are due in court Monday.
