A 15-year-old girl was shot in a car with her uncle in a road rage incident Wednesday night in Oakland, California, who took her to a hospital where she could not be saved.

The girl has been identified as Shamara Young.


The city’s top police officer, Leron Armstrong, said there was a brief argument that resulted in one vehicle setting fire to another, KTVU told. The report said that the girl was hit several times.
