Fatal Shooting of 10-Year-Old Girl in Road Rage Incident Leaves Parents Reeling
While the dad survived, little Summer Brown died of her injuries.
Surveillance cameras captured the minutes before a fatal road rage shooting left a 10-year-old girl dead in Phoenix, Arizona, Wednesday night.
Video shows a white pickup hot on the trail of a sedan in which a family of four was heading home. When dad pulled into his driveway, gunfire rang out from the truck, and a bullet struck and killed 10-year-old Summer Brown, who was sleeping in the back seat.
"She gasped because it woke her up, and she was trying to breathe. And she was slumped over and that is when I saw this hole in her back and I was trying to stop the bleeding. I could just see her gasping and gasping and she just kind of just slumped over,” mom Taniesha told Inside Edition in an emotional interview.
Police say it's a tragic case of road rage taken to the extreme.
Phoenix police released an image of the truck as well as a sketch of the suspect Thursday.
In less than 24 hours after the tweet, an arrest was made. Joshua Gonzales, 20, was taken into custody.
Police said he desperately tried to alter the look of the truck.
The girl’s parents are thankful for the speedy arrest but devastated by the loss of their little girl.
"That was my baby, man, my baby,” dad Dharquintium said as tears streamed down his face.
Dharquintium was also shot in the incident, but he was treated at a hospital and released.
