The nephew of Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade was one of 13 people shot Thursday, according to multiple reports. Two of the men died in the six-hour shootout.
“I don’t have all of the details at this time,” Wade said in a written statement released early Friday evening. “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.”
Wade was in Toronto Friday night for a game with the Raptors.
