A seventh person was charged in connecting with the mass shooting of 13 people, including a 3-year-old boy, in a park on Chicago's South Side, police said.

Quinton Humphries was charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of felony aggravated battery with a firearm in connection to the shooting in Cornell Square Park, according to authorities.

The shooting near 51st and Wood occurred about 45 minutes before the park’s 11 p.m. curfew on Sept. 19.

Prosecutors say the shooting was an act of revenge for a minor graze wound one of the suspects suffered several hours earlier in the 5200 block of South Paulina after a quarrel with gang rivals.

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.

Six other men have been charged in the incident.
