CHICAGO (CBS) — Two more people, including the alleged gunman, have been charged in a mass shooting that left 13 people wounded in the Back of the Yards neighborhood last week.
The latest charges come just hours after two other men were charged in connection with the shooting late Thursday at Cornell Square Park, at 51st and Wood streets.
“As of right now, we have four offenders charged in this shooting, including the man who fired that military-grade weapon, and a man who supplied that military-grade weapon,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said at a news conference Tuesday morning.
He said the man who fired an assault rifle in the attack — 22-year-old Tabari Young — has a record including more than a dozen arrests. Prosecutors said the weapon he fired was an AK-47.
Young and three other men — Brad Jett, 22; Kewane Gatewood, 20; and Bryon Champ, 21 — all have been charged with three counts each of attempted murder and aggravated battery.
The four were denied bail at a bond hearing Tuesday afternoon.
McCarthy said Gatewood supplied the assault rifle Young fired at the park. Champ also allegedly fired a gun during the attack, and Jett acted as a lookout, according to McCarthy. Prosecutors said Champ’s gun was a .22-caliber revolver.
“Today, we bring four criminals to justice for their roles in the shooting of 13 people, including a 3-year-old child,” McCarthy said.
