4-year-old KC boy killed in apparent gang dispute

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police say a 4-year-old boy who died after a shooting was the innocent victim of a gang dispute.

Police say Aydan Perea was taken off of life support Tuesday. He was shot Saturday night as he sat with his father and two other men in a car at a Kansas City home.

A 1984 tan-over-white Chevrolet Monte Carlo stopped behind the vehicle and fired at the car, hitting Aydan.

Police later found the car abandoned.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/WqNzy1 ) it was the second time Aydan had been involved in a shooting. He was asleep at a house last year when someone fired four shotgun blasts in the middle of the night. No one was hurt in that shooting.
