Glendale - A two-month-old baby who was shot in an apparent road rage incident on I-43 on Sunday, Sept. 11 is now in stable condition.
The Glendale Police Department received a 911 call at 4:52 p.m. from a person saying they had been shot at on I-43 near Capitol Drive. A person in the suspect's vehicle fired at the victim's vehicle in an apparent road rage incident, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.
