A 16-year-old girl from Limington, Maine was returning home from a trip with three other relatives when they were involved in a road rage incident on I-495 in Merrimac, Massachusetts.
According to police, a passenger in another vehicle opened fire shortly after 12:15 p.m. on the car the girl was riding in. The girl was shot in the arm. She was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released.
"Evidence suggests this was a road rage incident between the driver of the car the girl was in and the other car," said a state police spokesman. "We do not believe the people in the victim's car and the people in the suspect car knew each other."
Police are still searching for the suspect vehicle, a white Honda Accord. The driver of the car was described as a white woman with sunglasses and the passenger who fired the shot was described as a light-skinned black or Hispanic male with short hair.
