The family of Aiden Leos, 6, is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of his suspected killer, who shot at his mother’s car during a road rage incident last Friday on the 55 Freeway in Orange.

The search is on for what has been described as a white Volkswagen station wagon. Santa Ana CHP Spokesperson Officer Florentino Olivera told KPCC/LAist that the department is looking for witnesses who may have been traveling along the Northbound 55 near Chapman Avenue last Friday between 7:55 and 8:15 AM - especially if they have a dashcam.
