Baby shot in Chicago road rage incident
The one-year-old was struck in the right temple and was rushed to the hospital by a good Samaritan at the scene.
(WILX) - A road rage incident in Chicago led to gunshots fired and a one-year-old baby boy seriously injured in the shooting.
Police believe the incident began Tuesday morning when one car would not let another car into a lane of traffic. The driver of a black Chevrolet vehicle began firing shots at a Dodge sedan on Lake Shore Drive near Soldier Stadium.
The one-year-old, Kayden Swann, was struck in the right temple and was rushed to the hospital by a good Samaritan at the scene.
“I just, it wasn’t incredibly complicated,” said the good Samaritan. “The person indicated they needed help. I was there, no one was helping so I offered to get them to the hospital as fast as I could.”
The boy was transferred to Lurie Children’s Hospital, where he is still fighting for his life.
A 43-year-old man is facing a felony gun charge in connection with the shooting, according to Chicago police.
Jushawn Brown, of Englewood, has been charged with a felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, police said.
“They are completely unknown to each other and there was a dispute possibly over somebody not letting somebody into a lane of traffic,” said Cmdr. Jake Alderden of the Chicago Police Department.
Bullet casings were recovered over a two-block stretch as the cars proceeded north, Alderden said.
