Two Men Arrested For Shooting 4-Year-Old Boy As He Played With Stuffed Animal Outside

Two men have been arrested in the killing of 4-year-old Daniel Munoz, who was shot while playing with a stuffed animal in his family's front yard.

According to the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department, Darron Daniels, 20, and Maurice Kelley, 25, were arrested for the boy's death and are being held on one count of murder each and two counts of attempted murder.

Munoz was playing outside of his relative's home in Highland, California, where he was staying, when the shots were fired. His parents, who live in Riverside, California, were away. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators haven't revealed a motive for the shooting. On Friday they said they were looking for a white 1990s Toyota Camry with black bumpers. They declined to provide any additional information.

Daniels and Kelley are set to appear in court on Monday. It is not currently known if either man has a lawyer.

They are both currently being held on $1 million bail.

Munoz's mother, Yuliana Morales, was out of town with his older sibling and cousins at an amusement part. She promised Daniel that he could go next time.

"It's my fault for leaving him here," his mother said.
