SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Southern California couple have been arrested for a road rage shooting that killed a 6-year-old boy last month on a freeway.

The California Highway Patrol held a news conference Monday, hours after Aiden Leos was buried in a private family ceremony.

The mother and witness say another car cut off her vehicle as she was driving the boy to kindergarten in Orange County on May 21.

She made a hand gesture to the other driver and a gunshot rang out, striking the boy.

The CHP says Marcus Eriz and Wynne Lee were arrested Sunday in Costa Mesa.
