Woman shoots mother, daughter in Sterling Heights road rage incident

A road rage incident ended with a woman shooting a mother and her adult daughter in a Sterling Heights parking lot across from Lakeside Mall.

Two vehicles were going back and forth aggressively on the road, police confirmed. The suspect, who is a CPL holder, was driving a white Dodge Durango; she pulled into a parking lot near a Carrabba's Italian Grill on Hall and Schoenherr. 

The mother and the daughter, in a red Jeep, followed. 

Everyone got out of their vehicles and continued arguing, police said. The suspect pulled out a pistol and fired multiple shots, striking the mother and the daughter. 

The daughter, who was shot in the neck, is in very critical condition, according to police. The mother is currently stable.

The suspect stayed on scene and is being cooperative with police. The incident remains under investigation.

"Now you have three people that are involved in this, their lives are going to be completely changed forever," said Sterling Heights Lt. Mario Bastianelli. "None of it is worth it. Because of what? Because you're angry about somebody's driving? It's just really senseless."

Police are reminding drivers not to engage with angry drivers on roadways.

"Let the person go," Bastianelli said. "Either change lanes, pull off, get away – if they're following you, call 911."
