The boy’s mother, Joanna Cloonan, claimed she was driving her son to kindergarten when she was cut off by white sedan occupied by a female driver and a male passenger. Witnesses say Cloonan flipped off the car in her rearview and moved to the right before the sedan followed her and opened fire. Her son, Aiden Leos, was struck by a bullet that pierced the trunk of her car.

“As I started to merge away from them, I heard a really loud noise,” Cloonan said. “And my son said, ‘Ow,’ and I had to pull over. And he got shot.”

Leos was rushed to the hospital but was later pronounced dead. The boy’s mother and older sister have publicly asked for help identifying and locating the six-year-old’s killer.

“They took my son’s life away,” Cloonan said. “He was beautiful and he was kind and he was precious, and you killed him for no reason. And I want to find them and I want there to be justice to be served for my son. He meant the world to me, and it feels like my life is over. That was my baby. I’ve never, never thought pain like this could exist.”

A GoFundMe for the boy’s family has raised over $184,000 and $50,000 will be used as a reward for information on the killer.
