One such incident that has created a shock is the death of an eight-year-old child in a road rage incident last week. The suspect Sidney Garrand has been arrested, and the case is ongoing.
When did the incident happen?
According to the statements from the police side, the incident occurred on October 27, 2022, when two men had been engaged in a heated road rage argument near the place of 16th Street and Greenway Parkway. And also, 48-year-old Sidney Garrand followed a vehicle, where there were three people, to the area of 16th Street and Greenway Parkway.
At the time, Garrand got out of his car and began fighting with the second driver, identified as a 28-year-old male, who also got out of his car.
What happened to the child?
During the period of the fight, the 28-year-old car driver pulled out a knife and stabbed Sidney Garrand, and he escaped. As the vehicle fled after this, Garrand then pulled out a handgun he had and fired at the car, striking it and an 8-year-old child in the back seat.
Then, the girl was taken to a hospital in critical condition and has now died, Phoenix Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Brian Bower said, as per the information received.
Unfortunately, the small girl lost her life without knowing what was happening around her. Both men were taken to area hospitals, with the 28-year-old man suffering non-life-threatening injuries and 48-year-old Garrand in critical condition.
But Sidney Garrand was arrested once he had gotten some recovery from his condition and had been booked into Maricopa County Jail on multiple charges, including first-degree murder.
