A Chicago man is being accused of shooting a 10-year-old boy as he played football in his front yard on the city’s West Side.
Bond was denied for Darris Moore, 31, who is charged with aggravated battery with a firearm. Moore is a convicted felon who was on probation for a 2008 armed robbery.
May 1, the boy was shot when gunfire erupted after an argument between two men in the Austin community. Police say the boy was not the intended target of the shooing. The victim was hit by one bullet and was hospitalized in stable condition.
