CHICAGO (AP) – A nephew of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was one of 13 men shot – two fatally – during a violent six-hour stretch in Chicago, another indication that violence is on the rise in the nation’s third-largest city.

A spokesperson for Wade confirmed that his nephew was one of those injured in a Thursday shooting at a convenience store. The spokesperson declined to confirm the nephew’s name or condition.

Wade, a Chicago native, was playing with the Heat at Toronto on Friday night. In a statement prepared for release before the game, Wade says he does not have all the details, but that his “thoughts and prayers are with all involved.”

The shootings are part of a larger uptick in violence across Chicago this year.
