3-year-old Chicago boy, Mateo Zastro, fatally shot in head during road-rage attack

A 3-year-old Chicago boy was fatally shot in the head over the weekend when his mother tried to flee a horrific road-rage attack, police said. 

Mateo Zastro had been sitting next to his siblings in the back seat of his mother’s SUV when a gunman opened fire at about 8:30 p.m. Friday in the city’s West Lawn neighborhood.

The little boy took a bullet to the head and was pronounced dead hours later at Christ Hospital.

His three siblings and mom weren’t injured.

“That mother is still grieving. All she’s doing is clutching onto two dinosaurs … the baby’s favorite toy,” said Andrew Holmes, a community activist who spent hours with the grief-stricken family over the weekend.

“We can get these baby-killers off the streets,” Holmes said.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video in a bid to track down the shooter, according to cops.

They are looking for a red Dodge Charger or red Ford Mustang. 

“Our vow to the child’s family and to the entire city is we will not rest until those responsible for this senseless and cowardly act of violence are brought to justice,” 8th District Commander Bryan Spreyne said. 

“To those responsible for taking this precious child’s life: Do the right thing, the honorable thing, and turn yourselves in.”

The little boy’s death comes just months after 5-month-old Cecilia Thomas was killed when she too was struck in the head by a stay bullet in a drive-by shooting.

The baby had been riding with her father when a gunman opened fire on their car, according to police.
