Following the loss of 23-month-old Jasper Woo a day later, the heart of the family of a little kid in Fremont has been devastated.
According to the CHP, he was wounded by a stray bullet while sitting in the back seat of his mother’s car on Interstate 880 in Auckland. In the Bay Area, there is shock and anguish over the loss of innocent life, and authorities are seeking the culprits.
According to investigators, evidence gathered on the freeway suggested that at least two cars were involved in a rolling fire war in the northern direction. Jasper was in a southbound vehicle when he was hit by a gunshot.
In the rolling gun war, detectives had not provided any suspect information or a motive. A dark-colored Chrysler 300 was one among the suspect vehicles, according to KPIX 5.
Relatives say the 23-month-old infant was resting in the back seat of his mother’s white Lexus when it was shot down on Southbound 880 in Auckland on Saturday afternoon. With a head injury, little Jasper was rushed to Auckland Children’s Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police investigate a scene of chaos on the road in a dashcam video shot after the incident. A motorcyclist was there and he tells that he heard it was a shooting and then found out an hour later that a young kid was involved. “It’s awful,” the motorist, Mike, responded.
The CHP says the child was possibly caught during a freeway gun battle. Evidence acquired on the northern side of the freeway may indicate the victims were not targeted and the young passenger was injured by a stray gunshot as said by the California Highway Patrol detectives in disclosing this family got caught in the crossfire.
Meanwhile, Jasper’s grandfather left the hospital with a plastic bag containing small shoes, and the rest of the family consoled his mother.
