A three-year-old boy from Arkansas was fatally shot in a road rage incident while on a shopping trip with his grandmother.

The gunman fled the scene and remains at large. Little Rock Police describe the suspect as a tall black man who drove an older black Chevrolet Impala.

"Tonight's homicide was a road rage incident," confirmed Little Rock Police in a tweet, adding that "the grandma and 3 year old victim are innocent and have no relationship w/ the suspect."

 

ABC News reports that the child and his grandmother were at a stop sign when the suspected shooter became angry that the grandmother "wasn't moving fast enough," so he exited his vehicle and opened fire.

The boy was struck by bullets at least once, but the grandmother was not struck. She drove away and called police outside a JC Penney at a nearby shopping mall.

The boy was transported to a hospital where he died.
