Dwyane Wade‘s cousin, Nykea Aldridge, was caught in the crossfire as two men shot at a third man on Friday afternoon in Chicago. Aldridge, who was pushing her baby in a stroller at the time, sustained head and arm injuries, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner. The baby was unharmed. The victim, a mother of four, had recently moved to the neighborhood and was headed to register her children for school.

““My cousin was killed today in Chicago,” Wade tweeted. “Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal.”

One of the shooters is reportedly being questioned by police.
