Suspects Arrested in Fatal Halloween Shooting of 5-Year-Old
Aaron Shannon Jr.
"This is absolutely horrific. This is 2 p.m. on Halloween," Pat Gannon, a Los Angeles Police Deputy Chief, told the Times. "This little boy was getting ready to go trick-or-treating... There is no reason for this shooting. This family has no gang ties. The shooters ... they are nothing but cowards."
The investigation has revealed the shooters, who are suspected gang members, may have targeted the wrong house. A press conference is set for 3 p.m. today.
