Aiden was fatally shot while sitting in the backseat of his mother Joanna Cloonan’s car as they drove along the 55 Freeway in Orange County en route to his kindergarten on May 21.
Highway patrol officials said the road rage incident stemmed from ‘a perceived unsafe lane change’.
According to accounts from the mother and witnesses who stopped to help her, the road rage ordeal unfolded when the driver of a white Volkswagen Golf Sportswagen cut Aiden’s mother off in the carpool lane.
The boy’s mother stuck up her middle finger at the driver before the other car slipped in behind her and someone inside fired a shot at the rear of her car.
The bullet struck Aiden in the back.
Aiden’s mother pulled over to the side of the road and cradled the little boy until an off-duty police office stopped to perform CPR and paramedics arrived.
The boy was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
A $500,000 reward had been offered for information that led to an arrest in the case.
