Police charged two men with murder for fatally shooting Nykea Aldridge, a cousin of basketball star Dwyane Wade, on Friday while she was pushing her baby in a stroller and walking to register her children for school.

Brothers Darwin, 26, and Derren Sorells, 22, were charged in the shooting, Chicago Police Department spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said. Guglielmi said on Twitter that Derren Sorells is a “documented member of the Gangster Disciples” and is on parole, while Darwin Sorells is a co-conspirator and also on parole for a gun charge.

Aldridge, 32, was not the intended target in the shooting, police said. The baby in the stroller was unharmed.

“Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON,” Wade who recently signed with the Chicago Bulls, wrote on Twitter.
