CHICAGO (AP) NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin was an innocent bystander, police said, pushing her baby in a stroller near a Chicago school where she intended to register her children when she was fatally shot Friday.

Nykea Aldridge's famous relative, who grew up in Chicago's south suburbs, tweeted to his nearly 6 million followers about her death, saying Friday it was an "act of senseless gun violence" and posting Saturday morning that Chicago needs "more help& more hands on deck." Wade ended both days of tweets with the hashtag "EnoughIsEnough."

The 32-year-old mother of four recently relocated to an area on the city's South Side, her family said. She was near the school, which is about a mile and a half southwest of the University of Chicago, 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.
