MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A vigil will take place Tuesday night for a little boy who was killed while trick-or-treating in north Minneapolis.
A car hit 5-year-old Victor Laureano-Uriza on Halloween on Victory Memorial Parkway and Knox Avenue North. The accident happened after dark, around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night.
He was dressed as one of his favorite characters, a Transformer. Police say the parents had stopped their car and the boy ran out toward some houses to trick-or-treat.
Investigators say an on-coming driver did not have time to stop.
The vigil will be held near the accident scene at 6 p.m.
