Boy, 6, Killed in Road Rage Shooting

Boy, 6, is killed in road rage shooting 'after his mother gave other driver the finger'

A 6-year-old boy was fatally shot during an alleged road rage incident on a Southern California freeway Friday morning.

Aiden's mother then pulled in at the side of the road and his mother cradled him in her arms until an off-duty police officer stopped to perform CPR and paramedics arrived at the scene.

Aiden and his mother were travelling in auto pool lane northbound on State Route 55 in the city of Orange, south-east of Los Angeles, when the gunman started firing at their vehicle.

"It went through the boy's back", Valdivia told the LA Times. Witnesses reported hearing a gun shot from a white sedan right before the child's mother pulled her vehicle over to the shoulder.

Reyes Valdivia and his wife had entered onto the freeway having already dropped off their two children at school when they spotted the mother's vehicle frozen on the shoulder.

"We don't have the details of what transpired", he said.

The person who shot Aiden Leo has not been apprehended by police. I just loved having him in my life, ' she said as she paid tribute to the little brother who would often come to her room to tell her that he loved her.

Death and destruction in Gaza as Israel attacks
Palestinians living in areas close to the Gaza-Israel border fled their homes in pickup trucks, on donkeys and by foot. At least 103 Palestinians and eight Israelis have been killed, according to Palestinian and Israeli official figures.

The gunman who fired the shot that killed the child remained at large as of Friday afternoon.

The boy was transported to the hospital, where he died. His name was not released.

The suspect was last seen heading north on the 55 Freeway, which was shutdown for hours.

Officers could be seen from a news helicopter footage combing the area for evidence.

The tragedy is unrelated to a string of more than 60 BB gun shootings that police are investigating in Orange, Riverside and Los Angeles counties in the past month, CHP spokesman Olivera assured. There have been almost 60 cases in which motorists have come under fire. The rear window of a CHP patrol vehicle was shattered after being struck May 14 in Anaheim on the eastbound shoulder of the 91.

Authorities are looking for those in connection to this incident, although there is no description of the suspect.
