Brothers Arrested In Connection with Death Of Dwyane Wade’s Cousin

Two brothers, both out on parole, are charged in the first degree murder of the cousin of Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade. 

Nykea Aldridge was walking to register her children at a South Side elementary school when she was shot to death on Friday as she was pushing a stroller with her newborn. The intended target was a nearby driver who had just dropped off passengers. 

Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson says Darwin and younger brother Derren Sorrells are convicted felons who spent time in prison. Derren was paroled two weeks ago. Police said on Sunday that both men are known gang members.
