CHICAGO - Two more men have been charged in a Chicago shooting that killed two people, including a toddler, and wounded a pregnant woman.
    
Authorities say Dionel Harris and Jeremy Ellis, both 19 and from Chicago, were charged Friday with first-degree-murder and attempted murder in a shooting on Valentine's Day that killed 2-year-old Lavontay White and Lavontay's uncle, 26-year-old Lazaric Collins.
    
The shooting in a West Side Chicago alley was partially captured on a Facebook Live video being streamed by the woman.
    
Last week, 26-year-old Devon Swan was charged with murder in the shooting.
    
Lavontay was one of three children fatally shot within days of each other in Chicago. Also killed were 11-year-old Takiya Holmes and 12-year-old Kanari Gentry-Bowers. An arrest was made and charges filed in Takiya's shooting death.
