CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Bond was denied on Wednesday for a Far South Side man charged with the Independence Day shooting of a 7-year-old boy, hit in the neck by two stray bullets while celebrating the holiday with family at a South Side park.

Marshan D. Bradley, 21, was charged with one count of aggravated battery with a firearm for the attack, which occurred at Cole Park about 7:25 p.m. last Thursday, Chicago Police said.

The boy had been with family members and friends in the Chatham neighborhood park, 361 E. 85th St., when a man began shooting, police said. The shooter left the park in a vehicle, officials said.

Some witnesses said they saw a car circling the park before someone got out and opened fire.

Police said they do not believe the youngster was the intended target. The youngster was near alleged gang members when he was shot, police said.

The boy was released from Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn on July 5, according to family.

At a hearing on Wednesday, bond was denied for Bradley, of the 10900 block of South Vincennes Avenue. He was scheduled to appear in court again on July 16.
