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 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.
