Dwyane Wade’s Nephew A Victim Of Deadly Shooting In Chicago

ThisIs50 reports the following:

Chicago – A nephew of NBA superstar Dwyane Wade was one of five people wounded in a gang-related shooting at a South Side convenience store Thursday night that also left one man dead.

Two men entered the Bishop Golden Store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street and opened fire on the people inside about 6 p.m., killing one man and wounding five others, police said.

The Rev. Michael Pfleger said Friday that one of the wounded was a nephew of Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade. The nephew is 20-years-old and police sources told FOX Chicago News that he is a gang member.

“I don’t have all of the details at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with all involved, including my nephew and sister,” Wade said in a statement. “Having grown up in the inner-city, I am aware of the difficult realities that exist on the streets. One of the goals of my foundation, the Wade’s World Foundation, is to continue to spread the message that the violence needs to stop.”
