Two brothers Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, and Derren Sorrells, 22, have been charged in connection with the shooting death of Nykea Aldridge, cousin of NBA star, Dwayne Wade, WLS reports.
On Friday afternoon, Nykea Aldridge was pushing a stroller along Chicago’s South Side when nearby gunfire struck her in the arm and the head.
The senseless killing sheds light on the plaguing gun violence in the city of Chicago.
Just a day before the shooting on Thursday, Wade spoke via satellite on a panel hosted by ESPN that was focused on gun violence. He called the issue “deep-rooted.”
“This is something that didn’t start today; this is something that isn’t going to end tomorrow,” he said. “Hopefully, eventually, we can stop it.” Read more at WLS.
