Her family said Nykea Aldridge, 32, had recently relocated to the area on the city’s South Side. Chicago police said she was killed when two males walked up and fired shots at a third man but hit Aldridge in the head and arm. She wasn’t the intended target, police said. Family members are caring for the baby, who wasn’t hurt. Police said Friday evening that they were questioning witnesses in the shooting but had no suspects in custody. Wade, a native of Chicago who signed with the Chicago Bulls in July after 13 years with the Miami Heat, 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. #EnoughISEnough.”
Stephen Jackson on potential free agency destinations and ring-chasers: “I love the Knicks, I love Chicago, even love New Orleans. I think those are great places where I can be a great teammate and also help the team become a better team. I’m not one of those guys that’s chasing the ring. I have one so I’m not one of those guys looking to be part of a championship team and get the ring and not really earn it.”
