Chicago police have charged a man with shooting a 7-year-old boy who was enjoying a picnic with his family in a South Side park on the Fourth of July.

Lyles was initially listed in critical condition following the incident, though police officials told DNAinfo Chicago the small boy is "doing better" and now recuperating at home.

Police don't believe the boy was the indented target and said Lyles was sitting near an known gang member when Bradley allegedly exited a vehicle circling the block to fire on the crowd of people.

Bradley is due in court July 16.
