As authorities continue their search for the person responsible for the road rage shooting death of 6-year-old Aiden Leos in Orange, a community-wide effort is also underway to support his family.
- It has been a full week and still no arrests have been made in connection with the murder of six-year-old Aiden Leos. Right now, this is the only lead we have for you. It is a white vehicle, a Volkswagen 2018 or 2019 Golf wagon. And this is the vehicle authorities believe was involved in this where the suspect was driving who fired that shot. Eyewitness News reporter Marc Cota-Robles joins us with a countywide effort to find out who's responsible.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: There's good reason the line's out the door at Station Donuts in Yorba Linda. Yeah, their donuts are sweet. What's happening today is sweeter.
- I wish I could have bought more. I'll preorder and get some more probably this weekend.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: It's all for Aiden Leos, the six-year-old shot and killed on the 55 Freeway one week ago. Turquoise was his favorite color. The special donuts are $25 a dozen, all proceeds going to the family's fund through this Sunday.
SUSAN HEAM: Being a mom of two, my kids are about Aiden's age, I was heartbroken for me to-- I can cry. But it was heartbroken for me to see.
DEE WADE: I have seven grandkids. I put them in the car every day. And I just think it's a shame that we can't just feel secure.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: Rockwell's, with three locations in Orange County, is also baking for the cause, selling special "Justice for Aiden" cookies. They can't keep up with the orders.
KENDYL SKEFFINGTON: Our community is awesome. And our bakers, they came in early. They're having their friends come in and help bake. We couldn't have done it without them.
RYAN MOORE: We have close friends that are friends with the family. So we'll be buying as many as we possibly can for lunch time when the kids get out of school today.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: Outside Rockwell's, a sign people across Orange County may be seeing more of-- who shot Aiden? And the new website, aiden-reward.com. Kris Eszlinger is behind the idea. He's been hanging his signs on freeway overpasses and other locations to help build support.
KRIS ESZLINGER: It feels really good. It's doing something good to bring this guy to justice because it's just, every bit of this is wrong.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: CHP officers today looking for this vehicle, what appears to be a 2018 to 2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen.
- It hurts to see that there's people out there that would commit a crime like this.
MARC COTA-ROBLES: Members of this extended community say these purchases are the least they can do.
DEE WADE: I know the mom is heartbroke but I just pray she gets some solace by the people that are caring and praying for her and her family.
