Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says Tabari Young was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in Thursday night's shooting at Cornell Square Park on the southwest side.

McCarthy said Tuesday that three other men who were also involved in the attack faces the same charges. They are Bryon Champ, Kewane Gatewood and Brad Jett.

The shooting injured 3-year-old Deonta Howard, who was shot in the face. Deonta is recovering from surgery.
