Actress Gabrielle Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, are presently in mourning as news reports reveal the death of the NBA star’s cousin.
The 32-year-old mother-of-four was reportedly killed in Chicago on Friday, August 26, in what Wade describes as “act of senseless gun violence.”
The victim identified as Nykea Aldridge was reportedly pushing a stroller in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens neighborhood when she was caught in a crossfire as two men fire on another man, getting hit in the arm and head. She was pronounced dead at the local hospital she was rushed to.
Speaking on the sad incident, Wade said:
“My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough”
Wade has always been pushing the message of peace over gun violence prior to the incident and did it again on stage at the ESPYS with Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.
The police are reportedly questioning two suspects. May her soul rest in peace.
