4-Year-Old Boy Shot in Head During Road Rage Incident


CLEVELAND – A 4-year-old boy is in serious condition after he was shot in the head in an apparent road rage incident overnight, the Cleveland Police Department said.

According to law enforcement authorities, the shooting happened while a mother was driving her 4-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter. The mother honked her horn to pass another car blocking the road.

Her actions apparently upset people in the other vehicle. The woman told police the car followed her onto the freeway and fired into her vehicle, reported ABC News. After her vehicle, and child were struck by gunfire, she exited the freeway and contacted EMS, police said. 

Police said the 4-year-old underwent surgery to remove bullet fragments. As a result, preliminary information indicates the bullet fragments did not penetrate his brain.

The 7-year-old girl suffered minor scratches from shattered glass, police said. The mother said she didn’t know the men in the other car, according to the police report.

Unfortunately, no arrests have been made, police said. Consequently, they are searching for two black men who were driving a white 4-door Pontiac with tinted windows.
