CHICAGO (STMW) –A fifth man charged in connection with a shooting last week in the Back of the Yards neighborhood that left 13 people wounded, including a three-year-old boy, was ordered held without bail Saturday.
David Logan, 22, of the 3100 block of South Green Street, was arrested Wednesday and charged with unlawful use of a weapon without a FOID card and obstructing justice, police said. He was ordered held without bail in court Saturday.
The mass shooting at Cornell Square Park near 51st and Wood occurred about 45 minutes before the park’s 11 p.m. curfew on Sept. 19.
He is one of five men arrested in connection with the mass shooting.
Tabari Young and Brad Jett, both 22, Bryon “Lord” Champ, 21, and Kewane Gatewood, 20, each face three counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm.
They were each ordered held without bail Tuesday.
Prosecutors said Champ and Young used an AK-47 and a .22-caliber revolver to fire into the Cornell Square Park crowd.
The shooting allegedly was revenge for a minor graze wound Champ suffered several hours earlier in the 5200 block of South Paulina after a quarrel with gang rivals, prosecutors said.
Police have said some of the victims in the park were members of the Gangster Disciples street gang and the shooters were suspected of being affiliated with the Black P Stones.
