4-year-old boy shot, wounded in apparent case of road rage

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a 4-year-old boy has been shot and wounded an apparent case of road rage after one vehicle cut off another in a Kansas city.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says the boy was among six children inside a sport utility when someone in a silver Ford Mustang fired two shots just before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Ramsay says the boy was shot in the stomach and taken to a hospital in stable but critical condition.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the Mustang took off after the shooting but was later stopped. Police are interviewing the people who were inside.

No information has been provided on the suspected shooter.

Ramsay says there are, on average, three road rage incidents involving a gun every week in Wichita.
