Baby shot in head in apparent road rage case, police say

Police in the Seattle suburb of Kent say a 1-year-old girl was shot in the head as she sat in a car with her parents in what is described as an apparent case of road rage.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said the baby girl was in “very critical condition” Thursday night in Seattle.

Kent police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson says the child was in a car seat in the back of a silver Chevrolet Impala and her parents were in the front seat when a black car pulled alongside around 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Robinson says the driver and passenger of the black car opened fire, then drove off.

Police didn’t offer details on the possible conflict.

The shooting took place at an intersection near an apartment complex.
