ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say they have detained a person of interest as they investigate the road rage shooting death of a 4-year-old girl on a freeway.

Police announced that the individual was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon and that they would provide more information later on the break in the case.

The announcement came a day after a 4-year-old girl was shot in what police are describing as a road rage attack. She was killed as her father drove her and a 7-year-old brother home from school Tuesday.

Police Chief Gorden Eden described the shooting about an hour before the start of Tuesday's evening rush hour as an unexplainable crime brought on by road rage.
