Memory Lane Auctions is kicking in to a growing reward aimed at finding the killer of a six-year-old boy in a road rage incident not far from the company’s Southern California offices.
The boy’s mother was driving her son to kindergarten when another driver opened fire between 7:55 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. The boy was struck in the stomach. The mother pulled over immediately and called 911 and the boy was rushed to Children’s Hospital of Orange County, where he was pronounced dead.
KNBC-TV stopped by Memory Lane’s offices and talked with other business owners kicking into a reward that’s now reached $300,000.
Also some TV coverage of the recent burglaries at sports card shops in Lexington, KY and Knoxville, TN indicates law enforcement investigators believe they are indeed related.
