The family of the child shot and killed in a drive-by in Cleveland Tuesday night is now asking why.

"None of this should have happened," the 3-year-old boy's cousin Darryl Howard said, telling his family is devastated.

Major Howard was shot on the east side of Cleveland while he was in the car on East 113th Street around 7 p.m.

The boy's family members mourn his life and also call for justice in his death.

The devastation of this senseless killing of Major Howard can never be corrected, But what my family want is Justice!!!...
