New details emerge in road rage shooting that put 3-year-old girl in coma
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (CBS12) —
New information has been released in the hunt to catch a gunman who shot an innocent little girl in a road rage rampage.
As the man driving three-year-old Preslie Jean and her mother left the WaWa on Floresta Drive and Prima Vista Boulevard, a black four-door Sedan slammed on the brakes in front of them, cutting them off, according to the report. The driver told police he drove around the Sedan and eventually turned east on Bywood Avenue and security camera footage captures the Sedan racing to catch up with them and turning left on Bywood Avenue as well.
Seconds later and a quarter of a mile away, he says out of the corner of his eye, he saw the sedan pull up alongside them near Vine Street, according to the report. Then he saw a flash of light and a loud bang. Horrified, they realized three-year-old Preslie Jean, who was sitting in the backseat next to her big brother, had been shot in the head.
The shooter fired a round through the truck's rear driver door, according to the report. The bullet went through the door’s armrest, exited Preslie’s head and landed on the truck's floor.
On Thursday, police started posting and handing out this reward's flyer at public places, which describes the driver as a light-skinned Hispanic or African American man.
They believe the driver of the black Sedan may be a black BMW with damage to its right side.
A $10,000 reward is on the table for anyone who can bring him to justice.
