MILWAUKEE — A baby girl shot while riding in a vehicle on a Milwaukee County interstate is expected to survive her injuries.

The sheriff’s office is investigating the shooting that happened about 5 p.m. Sunday on Interstate 43 in Glendale. The two-month-old girl was taken to Children’s Hospital and is in stable condition.

Deputies shut down northbound I-43 for about three hours while they investigated. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s office says someone in the suspect’s vehicle fired at the victim’s vehicle in an apparent road rage incident.

The sheriff’s office says the shot went through a rear door and an infant safety seat, grazing the baby.

Sheriff’s detectives are trying to identify the suspect’s vehicle.
