Leos was sitting in the back seat of the Sonic when a gun was reportedly fired from a station wagon, believed to have been a late-model Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. The bullet went through the trunk of the Sonic and the boy’s booster seat, striking him in his back.
CHP said after the shooting, the suspect vehicle continued north on the 55, then traveled east on State Route 91 toward the city of Riverside. Authorities said the driver was female and the passenger was male.
We are confirming the arrest of the two suspects believed responsible for the shooting death of 6-year-old Aiden Leos. Marcus Anthony Eriz, 24, and Wynne Lee, 23, were arrested at their home in Costa Mesa.
