(Cleveland) — Cleveland police say a four-year-old boy was shot in the head and wounded while riding in a vehicle when someone fired at it as his mother drove on the Shoreway.

Police say the woman reported that she honked the horn to pass a vehicle blocking West 28th and Division late Sunday night, and that vehicle followed her onto the West Shoreway. She told police that two men were in the trailing vehicle, and someone fired shots toward her as they approached Dead Man's Curve.

She said she exited the highway to call for help for the boy, who was in the backseat. He was taken to UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital for surgery to remove bullet fragments.

Police are looking for a white Pontiac 4-door vehicle with tinted windows, which had two black males inside.

News 5 reports that police found a shell casing on the shoulder of the highway, along with shattered glass.
