Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted Saturday about the fatal shooting of National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade's cousin, in another apparent attempt to persuade black voters to back him in November.
Brothers Darwin, 26, and Derren Sorells, 22, were charged in the shooting, Chicago Police Department spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said.
Mother of four Nykea Aldridge, 32, was shot in the head and arm during an exchange of gunfire between two men in Chicago. Jones said she and her family had recently relocated to the neighborhood and she was on her way to register her kids at school when she was shot.
Nykea Aldridge's famous relative, who grew up in Chicago's south suburbs, tweeted to his almost 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, who was born in Chicago, signed with the Chicago Bulls this July in a move that was celebrated by the city as a homecoming.
She told reporters: "I just sat up on a panel yesterday talking about the violence that's going on within our city of Chicago, never knowing that the next day we would be the ones that would be actually living and experiencing it". Police say she wasn't the intended target. The shooting left one dead, the Chicago Tribune said. There were 65 homicides last month.
"RIP Nykea Aldridge. #EnoughIsEnough", Wade tweeted Saturday.
"So we send our thoughts and prayers to the family and we also promise to fight for a much, much better tomorrow", Trump added.
"Dwyane Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago".
"I'm sure you are all Dwayne Wade's family can even think about right now!" read another post.
He followed that by writing, "These young kids are screaming for help!"
He and his mother, Jolinda Wade, a Chicago pastor, also participated in an ESPN discussion on gun violence in America that was recorded at a YMCA in Chicago.
"The endless gun violence in places like Chicago, Dallas, not to mention Orlando, it has to stop; enough", Wade said.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence sidestepped questions Sunday morning on CNN's "State of the Union" about the flow of guns into IL from his state.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hasn't publicly commented on Trump's tweet, but her running mate Sen.
