The arrests came after a two-week manhunt and a day after a weekend memorial service for Leos, who was remembered as a child with a vocabulary beyond his years who exuded warmth and tenderness.

Leos was killed on May 21 while seated in the booster seat of a car being driven by his mother, Joanna Cloonan, in the city of Orange on the way to drop him off at school.

Cloonan said another vehicle cut her off on the 55 Freeway and that she responded with a hand gesture. The driver of the other vehicle got behind her and someone fired a shot through the rear of the car. Leos was struck in the abdomen.

Cloonan said she pulled over as well as a witness to try and save the boy’s life. Leos was buried Monday in a private ceremony.

The killing came amid concerns over a spate of freeway shootings in Southern California.
