The Gun Violence continues…..
Nykea Aldridge is the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, she was shot and killed friday afternoon in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens neighborhood. Wade recently joined ESPN talk show, The Undefeated to speak on the ongoing violence in the city of Chicago and how he could help bring awareness.
His cousin was shot in the head and arm and was lifted to Stroger hospital where she was pronounced dead. Wade’s mother, Pastor Jolinda Wade spoke about Aldridge while comforting her sobbing sister.
Just sat up on a panel yesterday, The Undefeated, talking about the violence that’s going on within our city of Chicago, never knowing that the next day we would be the ones that would actually be living and experiencing it,” Pastor Wade said.
Police said two men approached another man who was walking around with Aldridge and opened fire around 3:30 pm in the 6300-block of South Calumet. The shooting took place near an elementary school. She was not the intended target of the crime. The baby that was in the stroller was left unharmed and is now with a family member.
