(CNN)A 15-year-old male has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of 7-year-old girl who was out trick-or-treating on Halloween, according to police.

The teen is scheduled to appear in court Saturday to face two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated battery in the shooting, which also left a man wounded.
The girl, dressed as a bumble bee, was trick-or-treating with her family around 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the Little Village neighborhood when a group of men chasing another man began shooting, Chicago police Sgt. Rocco Alioto told reporters.
The child was shot in the lower neck, police said, and is in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.
