Gonzalez’s family said he was dropping off a friend at the time. On Monday night, the tree that his car crashed into was surrounded by loved ones.
“It’s not cool what you guys did,” said Gonzalez’s aunt, Corinne Granados. “It’s not cool driving around thinking you can just shoot at random people for a senseless act and take away his life. He was my sister’s only child.”
Police say Gonzalez was not known to them. No arrests had been made as of late Thursday.MORE NEWS: Jussie Smollett Trial: Defense Attorney Calls For Mistrial And Accuses Judge Of Lunging At Her; Judge Denies Claims And Motion
