Police have said the attack was led by a gang member seeking revenge after being grazed in the leg hours earlier. Two gunmen armed with an AK-47-style assault rifle and a .22-caliber revolver fired into a crowded basketball court.

The shooting wounded several rival gang members as well as bystanders, including a 3-year-old boy.

Curtis is expected to appear in Cook County bond court Sunday. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
