A 2-year-old boy was shot in the stomach after an early morning road rage incident in downtown Baltimore.
According to WJZ, City Police responded to the 600 block of W. Franklin Street around for a Shot Spotter alert at 12:43 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived they couldn’t find a victim or suspect.
Officers were later called to an area hospital for a report of a 2-year-old boy being treated for a gunshot wound to his stomach.
Police say before the shooting, several cars were waiting at a red light at an intersection. When the light turned green, none of the front cars moved. Another car began blowing their horn several times before moving around the stopped vehicles and making a turn.
One of the drivers stopped at the light, then followed the car that blew its horn and that driver fired a shot into the vehicle.
Police believe the suspect vehicle is a gray or silver minivan. The suspect is described as a “heavy-set, black male with dreadlocks.”
A $15,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
The child is in stable condition and is expected to survive.
