A 2-year-old toddler was shot in the head and killed in Avondale, Alabama late Saturday night while he was in a vehicle with his parents and another man.

The little boy’s name is Ron’Narius “Duke” Austin, who just turned 2 last month.

The boy, his mother and a man all were hit by the gunfire. Birmingham police Sgt. Bryan Shelton Sunday afternoon said the man who was shot in the back was the car’s driver. The boy’s mother was shot more than in the arm.

 Duke was in the back seat with his father, who was not injured.

The two adult victims went to UAB, and Duke went to Children’s of Alabama. The boy’s father was on the scene holding his son when police arrived. Police said a gun was found in the backseat of the victims’ vehicle, AL.com reported.

Birmingham police Sgt. Bryan Shelton said the actual gunfire erupted in the alley in the 4200 block of Fourth Avenue South. A vehicle with at least four people in it was at some point involved in a shootout with someone inside the victims’ vehicle. After the shooting, he said, the suspect vehicle left the scene.

“It is not clear at this time what started the exchange of gunfire,” Shelton said. “Information is still coming in, and at this time, we have no suspects or motive.”

About two dozen family members kept vigil outside of Children’s of Alabama. They said they had all been together at a family gathering just before the shooting.

About 1:30 a.m. Sunday, the boy’s mother was brought from UAB’s ER to see her son. Police and family said he was pronounced dead, but later said he remained on life support. At 5:30 a.m., Birmingham police said the boy had died.

“Our children, particularly at that age, are really vulnerable. Right now, a family is mourning and has to bury a toddler because of gun violence,” Shelton said. “A big part of the investigation is to find out what happened in that alleyway that causes the exchange of gunfire between the two vehicles.”

“He went to sleep, but baby when he woke up, he was in paradise,” one of his cousin’s posted on Facebook. “God has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will.”

So damn sad.

Unfortunately, it’s obvious that the parents were involved with something bad- most likely drugs, gangs or burglaries that resulted in their son being murdered.

I hope it was worth it. Your son is DEAD!

Rest in peace little dude.

God Bless!
