A 3-year-old was killed in an Arkansas road rage shooting


A 3-year-old boy who was on a shopping trip with his grandma was killed Saturday evening in an apparent road rage shooting. 

The other driver opened fire on the grandmother's car because the man thought she, "wasn't moving fast enough at a stop sign," police told KATV

Police said the boy and his grandmother were at a stop sign in Little Rock when the other driver apparently became angry about the delay, stepped out of his car and opened fire. 

The boy was struck at least once and the grandmother, who wasn't struck, drove away and called police from a shopping center. 

When police arrived, they found the boy inside the grandmother's car. He was rushed to the hospital, but died shortly after. 

This is the second young child who's been shot in a road rage incident in the city within the last few weeks. 

Police Lt. Steve McClanahan said officials believe the boy and his grandmother are completely innocent and have no relationship with the shooter. 

The shooter, who has not been identified, was driving what police describe as an older, black Chevrolet Impala. 

Last month, a 2-year-old was killed when someone drove by the car she was sitting in and fired into it. That shooter has yet to be captured. 

Police said it's unclear whether the shootings are connected in any way.
