Tragedy struck Chicago Bulls power forward Taj Gibson and his family on Sunday. Gibson’s little cousin, Prince Joshua Avitto, was brutally stabbed in an elevator in Brooklyn. Avitto, who was just six years old at the time, was accompanied by Mikayla Capers, a 7-year-old girl. Capers was also wounded, but managed to escape the elevator. She was rushed to Brooksdale Hospital.
Gibson took to Instagram on Monday, posting this photo of his “lil super man,” along with the following caption:
