What in the hell is wrong with people?
Twelve-year-old Gabriel Garcia was an innocent passenger riding down Interstate 15 on Monday afternoon when a sudden lane change led to a 60-mph shouting match, a brief chase and finally gunfire that left him grievously wounded.
On Thursday, the San Bernardino man accused of being involved in the alleged road rage shooting near Devore, leaving Gabriel wounded in the head and leg, surrendered to authorities.
Pedro Escobedo, 43, was booked on a single count of attempted murder, and if Gabriel dies, the suspect will face a murder charge, said San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers.
Gabriel, who is from Hesperia, is not expected to survive and will be taken off life support once doctors find recipients for his organs, officials said.
"We can say for sure that Escobedo was the driver," Beavers said. "The investigation has not ruled him out as the shooter. Maybe after his interview is completed, it will be a little clearer."
Gabriel was a passenger in a black Nissan Maxima on Monday heading south on Interstate 15 in Devore when the driver of his car allegedly got into a verbal altercation with Escobedo, who was driving a white Ford Explorer.
Escobedo allegedly fired several shots into the Nissan and continued to follow it on the freeway. The Nissan's driver eventually stopped in a Mira Loma shopping center.
The Nissan was riddled with at least 10 bullet holes, but no one else was wounded, officials said.
Gabriel was taken by ambulance to Riverside Community Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery.
