5-year-old girl hurt in Milwaukee road rage shooting

July 26, 2019

MILWAUKEE Milwaukee police say a 5-year-old girl was shot and wounded in an apparent case of road rage, the second such case in less than two weeks.

The Milwaukee girl was grazed in the leg Thursday morning by a bullet when someone fired into the car in which she and her father were traveling on the city's north side.

The Journal Sentinel reports the bullets came through the back of the car, where the girl was sitting. She was the only passenger in the car her father was driving.

Detectives are pursuing leads.

The shooting happened a couple of blocks from a road rage shooting that killed 3-year-old Brooklyn Harris on July 13. A Milwaukee man, 39-year-old Antonio Bratcher, is charged in that shooting and pleaded not guilty Thursday.
