LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Police said a 3-year-old boy on a shopping trip with his grandmother was killed in an Arkansas road rage shooting when a driver opened fire on the grandmother’s car because he thought she “wasn’t moving fast enough.”
Authorities said the boy and his grandmother were at a stop sign in southwest Little Rock on Saturday when a driver, apparently angry about the delay, stepped out of his car and opened fire. They said the boy was struck by gunfire at least once.
The grandmother wasn’t struck. She drove away and called police from a shopping center.
Police Lt. Steve McClanahan said investigators believe the grandmother and the boy “were completely innocent” and have no relationship with the shooter.
Police said they’re looking for an older black Chevrolet Impala driven by a tall black man.
