The nephew of NBA superstar Dwyane Wade (pictured) was injured Thursday evening during a violent gang-related shoot-out outside of a Chicago convenience store.  The incident left one person dead and five others injured.  Police are still unsure as to the motives behind the violence but suspect that drugs were somehow involved, reports the Chicago Tribune.

According to police, two hooded gunmen entered the Bishop Golden store in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood and suddenly opened fire.  The trigger men continued the gun blaze outside the store  until they jumped into a waiting SUV and sped off.

Shawndell Harris, 22, was murdered in the gun battle, four other men — between ages 16 and 25 — taken to a nearby hospital are listed in critical condition. The fifth victim is listed in good condition. No information is being provided on the condition of Wade’s nephew.

Wade, who is a South side Chicago native, actually had a game against Toronto on Friday but said in a written statement regarding the violence:

I don’t have all of the details at this time.  My thoughts and prayers are with all involved, including my nephew and sister. Having grown up in the inner-city, I am aware of the difficult realities that exist on the streets. One of the goals of my foundation, the Wade’s World Foundation, is to continue to spread the message that the violence needs to stop.”

The Miami Heat guard is expected to provide further comment post game on Friday night.

The shooting involving Wade’s nephew comes on the heels of a somber controversial picture that circulated late last week of the Miami Heat dressed in hoodies.  The photo was taken to show support for Trayvon Martin and for all of the other Black youth who are unfairly targeted as threats by law enforcement or trigger happy vigilantes.  Martin was brutally shot to death last month in a gated community by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida.  The unarmed 17-year-old youth was unarmed when he was chased and shot dead by Zimmerman.

No arrests have been made in his murder.
