MILWAUKEE — The mother of 3-year-old Brooklyn Harris who was killed in a road rage shooting on Saturday, has started a GoFundMe for funeral expenses.

The 3-year-old was shot and killed Saturday morning after a road rage incident. She was with her mom and siblings in a car when her mom nearly crashed with another near 42nd and Concordia. Police say the driver of the other car shot at them, striking Harris.

“She just turned three on the first. She just turned 3-years-old,” Harris' granmother said.

Police have a suspect in custody, butthe community and city leaders are wanting an end to the violence.

“On a Saturday morning, to have a young child lose their life because some jerk decides that he’s going to use a gun because he’s mad at someone on the streets is just insanity,” Mayor Tom Barrett said.

“Everyone of you should be just as angry and upset about this as I am," Assistant Police Chief Ray Banks said. "She had her whole life in front of her."
