CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police say they're still searching for whoever opened fire on a park on the city's southwest side, injuring 13 people.

Investigators said Friday morning they believe Thursday night's shooting was gang-related. They still haven't made any arrests in the attack that injured a 3-year-old boy and two teenagers.

The preschooler was taken to Mt. Sinai hospital in critical condition after he was shot in the cheek. Hospital officials said Friday that he was a patient there, but couldn't provide an update on his condition. A 15-year-old boy was shot in the arm and 17-year-old girl was shot in the foot.

The shooting was reported around 10 p.m. Thursday. One witness said dreadlocked men opened fire from a car, but police didn't say how many suspects they were searching for.

Family members and a pastor of a 3-year-old Chicago boy who was one of 13 people shot on the city's southwest side say he's resting in a hospital.

Semecha Nunn is the boy's grandmother. She says he's "doing better" and is "very strong" after he had plastic surgery.

Family members say the boy was shot in the cheek.

Corey Brooks is a pastor at New Beginnings Church of Chicago. He spoke to the media along with family members outside Mt. Sinai Hospital.

Brooks says the toddler was talking when he arrived at the hospital and is heavily sedated.
