According to police, a 3-year-old boy was killed in a road rage shooting after being taken on a shopping trip by his grandmother. A driver opened fire on the grandmother’s car because he thought she “wasn’t moving fast enough at a stop sign.”

Authorities stated that on Saturday evening, the boy and his grandmother were at the stop sign in southwest Little Rock when a driver apparently angry about the delay stepped out of his car and opened fire. As a result, the boy was struck by gunfire at least once.

The grandmother, who wasn’t struck, drove away and called police from a shopping center.  Police arrived at the shopping center and found the boy in the car outside a JCPenney department store, where he was taken to a hospital.

The child died shortly after, becoming the second young child shot dead in a road rage incident in the city in the last few weeks.

Police Lt. Steve McClanahan said investigators believe the boy and his grandmother “were completely innocent” and have no relationship with Saturday’s shooter, who was being sought. Police said they were looking for an older black Chevrolet Impala.

However authorities did not release a detailed description of the man who was driving it.  Police Chief Kenton Buckner said the road rage killings were frustrating for the police department and the community, especially because the young victims were “very innocent” and “can do very little to protect themselves.”
