ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A 4-year-old girl in Albuquerque, New Mexico was killed in a road rage shooting.

Police spokeswoman Celina Espinoza says police are searching for a suspect.

The child’s parents were also in the car but weren’t hurt.

Police say it’s not clear what caused the incident to escalate.

Officer Simon Drobik says the shooting late Tuesday afternoon prompted authorities to shut down westbound traffic on a section of Interstate 40 as police investigate.

The shooting comes after a road rage shooting last month in which police say a man shot another driver in self-defense. The Sept. 9 shooting that wounded 34-year-old Jacoby Johnson was being reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office.
