The parents of the 2-year-old boy found in the chaotic aftermath of the Highland Park parade shooting were identified Tuesday as Kevin and Irina McCarthy.

The boy, Aiden, was unharmed in the massacre, according to a fundraiser verified by GoFundMe. He will be cared for by family members.

“Aiden is left in the unthinkable position; to grow up without his parents,” the page says. “He will have a long road ahead to heal, find stability, and ultimately navigate life as an orphan. He is surrounded by a community of friends and extended family that will embrace him with love, and any means available to ensure he has everything he needs as he grows.”
