On May 17 around 9:15 p.m., the boy was with his family in their car driving south on Hacienda Boulevard in La Puente. A car was approaching from the other direction without its headlights on. Enrique's stepdad let the other driver know the lights were off.

A few moments later someone inside that other car fired a shot into the family vehicle, hitting Enrique.

The boy was rushed the hospital where he died.
