A 22-month-old boy is dead after being shot multiple times while sitting inside a vehicle on Jacksonville’s Eastside Friday evening, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
Aiden Michael McClendon was shot once in the shoulder and multiple times in the abdomen just after 6 p.m. in a drive-by shooting in the 700 block of Spearing Street that left the car he was in and a nearby house sprayed with bullets, Chief Tom Hackney said.
The boy was admitted to a hospital in critical condition after the shooting and later died.
Inside the parked vehicle was the boy, his mother and his grandmother. However, Hackney said it appears the intended target was inside the house.
“The senseless nature of this continues to draw attention,” Hackney said.
The toddler's killing has prompted city and faith leaders to gather Saturday in a joint news conference to address the ongoing violence plaguing Jacksonville. Mayor Lenny Curry and Sheriff Mike Williams will be joined by Bishop John Guns of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church and Operation Save our Sons and Wyllie Hodges, the executive director of First Coast Crime Stoppers.

On Friday, the community came together to remember a toddler killed in a drive-by shooting. A memorial was held for 22-month-old Aiden McClendon.
On January 29, Aiden was shot in a drive-by.
It’s a murder that has outraged the community. Aiden was caught in the crossfire of gang violence. An act that breaks the heart of AJ Jordan, Vice President of MADDADS Jacksonville.
“Shooting into a car! They don’t know what they’re shooting at and they killed a 22-month-old baby,” Jordan said.
Police say Aiden wasn’t the target but the shooting itself was gang-related.
Aiden was shot multiple times. He was in a car with his mother and grandmother when the drive-by shooting happened on Jacksonville’s Eastside near the intersection of Spearing and Albert streets.These posts are In My Opinion only!
