2 Brothers Charged In Fatal Shooting Of Dwyane Wade’s Cousin Nykea Aldridge

Two brothers have been charged with murder and are being held without bond for the fatal shooting of Dwyane Wade‘s cousin, Nykea Aldridge.

Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, and Derren Sorrells, 22, who were convicted felons out on parole, were charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder for the August 26 shooting in Chicago.

The brothers appeared in court on Sunday, where Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered both held without bail.

Via The Chicago Tribune:

Aldridge, 32, was pushing a baby stroller in the 6300 block of South Calumet at 3:30 p.m. Friday when she was shot in the head and arm. The mother of four was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. Aldridge’s baby wasn’t hurt in the shooting.

Authorities said the brothers were targeting a man who drove two women from a suburb to Chicago’s Parkway Gardens neighborhood. Police think the driver made eye contact with one of the brothers and then both Sorrellses opened fire on him, unintentionally striking Aldridge.

Surveillance cameras at a nearby school captured the Sorrellses in the area but did not record the shooting. No weapons were recovered, police said.

According to police, they were able to make a swift arrest because the community was more cooperative due to the high-profile nature of the case.

On Saturday, Dwyane Wade tweeted out:

My condolences and prayers to the family.
