Dwyane Wade’s cousin Nykea Aldridge killed in Chicago, Two Brothers Charged
Chicago police have arrested and charged two men with the murder of Dwyane Wade‘s cousin.
Two brothers who were on parole for prior criminal activity have been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, Chicago police announced Sunday.
Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, and Derren Sorrells, 22, also were charged with attempted murder in Friday’s shooting.
They appeared in court Sunday and were ordered held without bail.
Nykea Aldridge, a 32-year-old mother of four, was pushing her baby in a stroller near a school where she’d planned to register her children when she was shot in the head and arm. She wasn’t the intended target, Cmdr. Brendan Deenihan said at a news conference Sunday, but rather a driver who had just dropped off passengers in the neighborhood.
There is video of the incident, Deenihan said, but no weapon was recovered and police don’t know where the weapon is.
