2-year-old boy shot in 'cowardly, violent act' of road rage, suspect charged: Baltimore police

A 2-year-old boy was shot in the stomach in a "cowardly, violent act" of apparent road rage in Baltimore, authorities said.

"You shot a child. Whoever you thought you were shooting at, you didn't shoot," Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said.

The 2-year-old, who had been in the car with his family, was taken to the hospital in "somewhat stable condition" and is expected to survive, police said Saturday.

The boy remained in the hospital Monday morning as the suspected shooter, Javon Johnson, 33, was charged, said police.

It's believed the suspect's car and the victim's car were among those stopped at a red light at 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, Harrison said at a news conference on Saturday.

When the light turned green, none of the cars moved through the intersection, even when the driver of the victim's car blew the horn several times, said Harrison.

After hitting the horn several times during the green light cycle, the driver of the victim's car drove around the vehicles at the light and turned the corner, Harrison said.

in Maryland only the law-abiding are not permitted to carry. Felons, however, are able to carry whatever they want and then vote after they are thrown in jail.

After hitting the horn several times during the green light cycle, the driver of the victim's car drove around the vehicles at the light and turned the corner, Harrison said.

My suspicion is that the shooter wanted the victim to get out of the car to find out why he wasn't moving, giving the shooter a chance to rob/carjack him.

This is weird.

Don’t know just how many cars were there, but victim was just caught behind a bunch of laggers not moving at a light. God forbid they should honk at them several times for not moving.
