BELOIT (WKOW) -- The Rock County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the young boy shot to death in Beloit Friday night. 

Austin R. Ramos, Jr. died from injuries during the shooting near the intersection of Shopiere Road and Prairie Avenue around 7 p.m. Friday. Police say the 5-year-old was in the backseat of a car driven by his father when someone inside an SUV that had been following them pulled up and fired multiple shots.

Authorities are searching for suspects in this case. Police say the SUV is maroon and a late 1990's or early 2000's model, possibly a GMC. Police say Saturday they're reviewing surveillance video from near the scene to gather more information but they need the public's help, too.

Anyone with information is asked to call Beloit Police Department at (608) 364-6800.
