4-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed in Road Rage Incident

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Police in Albuquerque say a 4-year-old girl has died after being shot in a road-rage incident on Interstate 40.

Authorities still are searching for a suspect in the shooting late Tuesday afternoon.

The girl was rushed to an area hospital, where police say she died. Her name hasn’t been released.

Police say it isn’t immediately clear what may have led the incident on the city’s west side to escalate.

A Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputy arrived on the scene shortly after the shooting, pulling up on the vehicle he believed was in distress to find the child inside.

The child’s parents were also in the car and escaped injury.
