A Wisconsin family is mourning the death of a three-year-old who was killed during a road rage incident Saturday.
Brooklyn Harris, 3, was in the vehicle with her mother and siblings when the car almost collided with another vehicle, according to a report published by Kron4. After the vehicles almost crashed, the driver of the other car allegedly opened fire on the family. The bullet struck and killed Brooklyn.
The suspect has been taken into custody by Milwaukee police after attempting to flee.
The road rage incident is still under investigation by police. It is unclear what charges the suspect could end up facing. (RELATED: Several Women Get Into Wild Road Rage Incident. The Video Is Incredibly Bizarre)
“She just turned three on the first. She just turned three years old,” the toddler’s grandmother, Lasanga Ferguson, told Kron4.
“These innocent kids should be able to play out here and live their life,” Ferguson continued. “It shouldn’t be all this killing going on. It’s always an innocent bystander.”
What has my city come to, when a 3 year old child is killed over road rage?
Her face is stained in my head. Her death has made me even more conscientious of myself and others while driving.
