A woman found shot to death in a Chicago apartment was a former girlfriend of Eddy Curry and the mother of his three-year-old son.

A relative found the bodies of Nova Henry and her daughter Ava in their apartment on Saturday evening. Both died from multiple gunshot wounds, said Chicago police spokeswoman Monique Bond.

Curry's three-year-old son was found unharmed at the scene. Curry is a former player for the NBA's Chicago Bulls.

The Knicks issued a public statement Sunday on Curry's behalf, asking that the media respect the privacy of the two families: "The Curry family is deeply saddened by this tragic loss and will keep the Henry family in their prayers."
