Two children, ages 12 and 13, are recovering after they were shot by the driver of a vehicle they had pelted with snowballs, police in Wisconsin said.
The kids were part of a group tossing snowballs at cars in Milwaukee on Saturday night when they became the targets of the violent road rage attack, police said in a series of tweets.
“It was like ‘boom, boom, boom, boom’ all in succession,” Pearlee Piggue, who heard the shooting just before 8 p.m., told local station WITI.
After firing into the group of children, the shooter fled the Silver Spring neighborhood in a white Toyota, police said.
A 12-year-old female and a 13-year-old male were taken to a local hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.
Police did not provide any additional details about the attack or shooting suspect when reached by HuffPost.
