A judge has ordered two Chicago men held without bond Monday on charges connected to the shooting of a 3-year-old boy hit in the abdomen and hip.

The two men -- 19-year-old Alger Sanchez and 22-year-old Anton Aseves -- face two counts each of attempted first-degree murder. They also have been charged with one count each of aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm.

Police say 3-year-old Jason Ares was critically wounded Friday night while standing next to his mother outside his home.

A Mount Sinai Hospital spokeswoman told the Sun-Times he was listed in fair condition Sunday afternoon.

The two men are next scheduled to appear in court Aug. 20. It wasn't immediately clear if they have attorneys.
