Two gunshots fired at a car Wednesday evening in the 500 block of Mitchell Avenue near the railroad underpass narrowly missed a toddler in a child safety seat, Hagerstown City Police said in a press release.
The driver and passenger were also uninjured in the 7:13 p.m. incident, police said.
Police said an unknown subject shot at the victim's car twice, striking the driver's side door as a result of what appears to be a road rage incident.
One round penetrated the door and back seat, narrowly missing a 17-month-old child in a child safety seat on the rear passenger side of the vehicle.
Prior to the shooting the victim was driving eastbound on West Irvin Avenue from Wayne Avenue when the suspect vehicle approached from behind and began tailgating them, police said.
