Law enforcement officials also reported that they know where the suspects’ vehicle is located, as well as the gun used in the shooting and that they are working to secure the firearm.

The reward for information leading to the arrest of suspect or suspects has surpassed $450,000.

Leos, who was laid to rest Saturday, was riding in the backseat of his mother’s, on his way to kindergarten, when the shooting incident occurred. Joanna Cloonan, Aiden’s mother, and the occupants of a white Volkswagen station wagon, allegedly Wynne and Eriz, were involved in the road rage incident over a perceived unsafe lane change, according to CHP.

Cheryl Gish, an Orange County resident, heard news of the arrest and came with her husband to the memorial site for Aiden on the Walnut Avenue overpass above the 55 Freeway. She spoke with CBSLA’s Jake Reiner.

“I’m thankful that they have somebody in custody. It doesn’t bring the little boy back, little Aiden’s gone, but I’m so thankful some justice will be served,” she said.

Per sources close to the case, both suspects are being held at the Costa Mesa Police Department on $1 million bail.
