CHICAGO — The West Lawn congregation gathered for a balloon release and prayer vigil in honor of a three-year-old boy who was shot dead while riding in a car with his mother Friday night.
Mateo Zastro’s mother told gatherers Monday she would not rest until police arrested her son’s killer.
Police said 3-year-old Mateo was in the back seat of a car while his mother was driving at Block 4400 of West Marquette Road around 8:40pm on Friday when someone in a red sedan fired shots into the vehicle.
Mateo was shot in the head and transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
