'My baby didn’t deserve this': Toddler shot in head during road rage incidentPosted: Updated:
The Port St. Lucie Police Department is asking for help from the public in finding the person who shot a 3-year-old girl during a road rage incident.
Detectives are hoping the public will recognize a newer model, dark colored, sedan with a blinking front turn signal, typically found in European cars.
“We definitely have that driver's side blinker, that turn indicator, in the front fender. We are going to have some damage, perhaps minor, on passenger side of the vehicle that we are looking for,” says Sgt. Joe Norkus, Port St. Lucie Police Dept.
Police believe the car was involved in a road rage incident over the weekend that left 3-year-old Preslie Jean with a gunshot wound to her head.
“Whoever knows anything, please come forward, my baby didn’t deserve this,” says Preslie’s mother.
Instead of going trick or treating, Preslie is in a medically induced coma to give her brain time to rest and heal.
“Everybody's kids are out there tonight celebrating Halloween, and trick or treating, and my daughter's laying in a hospital bed, in an induced coma, and she wanted to be Ariel and walk around and celebrate too,” says Preslie’s mother.
Crime stoppers is offering a reward for an arrest and ATF is offering a $5,000 reward for an arrest and conviction in this case.
