People magazine reports the tragic death of NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin, Nykea Aldridge, who died Friday when caught in crossfire on the city's South Side.

Aldridge was pushing a stroller down the street when "several men started shooting at each other." Aldridge was struck in the arm and in the head; she died 45 minutes later in the hospital.

Wade posted his shocked and saddened reaction on Twitter, declaring of "senseless gun violence" that "#EnoughIsEnough".

Two suspects are currently in custody.

In a controversial move, presidential candidate Donald Trump capitalized on the tragedy, tweeting about the event and using it to proclaim that African-Americans will now "VOTE TRUMP!"
