A 2-year-old boy was shot in the head and left fighting for his life during an apparent road rage incident on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive on Tuesday.
The boy was in a car driven by his grandmother just north of Grant Park, when shots from another vehicle rang out around 11 a.m., WGN reported.

The toddler was hit in the head by a bullet, and was in grave condition, the station reported.
“At this time, it appears that they are completely unknown to each other and there was a dispute possibly over somebody not letting somebody into a lane of traffic,” said Commander Jake Alderden, according to the station.
The road rage incident escalated over a period of several blocks in one of the Windy City’s most scenic and busy areas, police reportedly said.
