LeBron James Reacts to Violence in Cleveland After Baby Dies From Drive-By Shooting

NBA superstar expresses frustration on Twitter following murder of a six-month-old girl.

Published October 2, 2015

LeBron James knows his voice carries weight and he isn't afraid to use it to speak about social issues and what's in the news...especially in Cleveland.

Reacting to a report about a six-month-old baby girl being shot and killed in a drive-by shooting on Cleveland's East Side, King James took to his Twitter account to say enough is enough.

The report marks the third time since early September that a child was killed in a drive-by shooting in Cleveland.

This is far from the first time that James has weighed in on events in the news. He spoke up against the killings of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown and, last December, he and his Cleveland Cavaliers' teammates were amongst the first NBA players to wear, "I Can't Breathe" T-shirts in protest for Eric Garner, who was choked to death by a NYPD cop.

Let's all hope better days are ahead.
