9 year old North Carolina boy dies of injuries suffered while riding in his car

A 9 year old boy has died of gunshot injuries suffered while he was riding in his mother's car. From an article:
A boy shot along with his mother in their car last weekend has died of his injuries.
Jaedan Sharpe, 9, son of 31-year-old Lakeisha Holloway, was shot on Jan. 4 in a sports utility vehicle on Lucas Drive. The Durham Police Department on Friday confirmed that the boy had died.
His death marks the first homicide of the year for Durham.
Callers told 911 operators that a shooter, on foot, fired as many as six shots into the vehicle. Holloway then drove a few blocks away to get help. The suspect fled.
Kids should be able to ride in their parents' cars without fear of being shot.
