SEATTLE (AP) — Police in the south Seattle suburb of Kent say a 1-year-old girl was shot in the head as she sat in a car with her parents in what was described as an apparent case of road rage.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said the baby girl was in “very critical condition” Thursday night in Seattle.

Kent police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson says the child was in a car seat in the back seat of a silver Chevrolet Impala and her parents were in the front seat when a black car pulled alongside at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Robinson says both the driver and passenger in the black car fired at the silver car, then drove off.

The shooting took place at an intersection near an apartment complex.

Police did not offer any details on the possible conflict between occupants of the two cars.
