Sheriff's Office Searching for Car Believed to Be Involved in I-43 Shooting of 2-Month-Old

Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office has released images of the type of car that may have been involved in the I-43 shooting of the baby.

The sheriff’s office is asking for assistance from the public in locating a vehicle that may have been involved in the I-43 northbound shooting of another vehicle on Sunday, September 11, 2016. 

The shooting, in which an infant was struck and injured while in her car seat, occurred on north I-43 approaching Hampton Avenue just before 4:45 p.m.

The family was traveling home from the zoo when a driver with road rage shot their car and the bullet struck the baby. 

A witness described the suspect vehicle as a maroon, or possibly a darker red, newer model Lincoln MKS or MKZ four-door sedan.  The most distinguishing features were the very dark tinted windows. No license plate information is available at this time. The vehicle was last seen exiting the ramp from northbound I-43 to the Hampton Ave. (east) exit.

Anyone having information or knowledge related to the shooting or the whereabouts of a vehicle that matches this description is encouraged to call the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office at 414-278-4788 to report the last known location of that vehicle and license plate.
