Kansas City driver hurt in shooting, with child in backseat

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A motorist has been injured in Kansas City after police say someone fired several shots into his vehicle while a 10-month-old child sat in the backseat.

The Kansas City Star reports the motorist drove to the hospital late Sunday after the shooting and underwent surgery for injuries that are not life-threatening. According to a police report, the driver was struck several times in the hand and leg. The child was not injured.

The report says the victim told investigators he was driving around 9:30 p.m. when a red Ford Taurus pulled alongside his vehicle, and someone inside the other car began shooting.
