A white sedan with a man and woman inside cut her off as she tried to switch lanes to exit, the mother told a witness who spoke with The Times on Friday. "And that's the last time my mum saw him alive".

The suspect, who is believed to have been sitting in the passenger seat of the offending motorist's auto, fired into the back of the vehicle, striking Aiden in the back.

As Aiden's mom changed lanes, a gunman suspected to be the passenger in the vehicle, believed to be a newer model Volkswagen, fired a fatal shot. Aiden's mother noticed something was wrong-though details are now scarce.

Images from the freeway crime scene show several investigators lined up on foot combing the asphalt for clues.

"If you were driving by, you saw something that was not right, call it in, even it wasn't something major, call our office", Olivera said.
