A 21-year-old Chicago man has been charged in the shooting of a 7-year-old boy celebrating the July 4 holiday at a South Side park.

Marshan Bradley of the 10900 Block of South Vincennes Avenue was charged with aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm, police said.

Police say Bradley opened fire at about 7:25 p.m. at Cole Park in the Chatham neighborhood last week, critically wounding the boy.

Witnesses said the boy was picnicking with his family for the Independence Day holiday.

The boy was rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Hours later a 5-year-old boy was shot multiple times as he sat with his family at Cooper Park, 11712 S. Ada St., in the West Pullman neighborhood.

In that shooting, Darrell Chambers, 24, was charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated battery with a firearm. He was ordered held without bond.

Bradley is expected in court July 16.
