Pastor Edward Jones says 32-year-old Nykea Aldridge was walking to register her children for school Friday after recently relocating.
Basketball star Wade posted on Twitter: “My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal.”
Chicago police say Aldridge was killed when two males walked up and fired shots at a third man Friday afternoon but shot Aldridge in her head and an arm. Police say she wasn’t the intended target.
