DENVER -- A road rage incident led to a drive-by shooting Sunday, sending two people to a hospital.

The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. at Broadway and Mississippi Avenue.

The victim's car, which had a child in it, pulled over for help a few blocks south near South Lincoln Street and Evans Avenue.

"It's a random thing. It could happen anywhere," neighbor Shane Medlin said.

This is what happens when anger behind the wheel erupts into gun violence.

"I saw a car sitting there. There was at least two people in it. Obviously, the windows had been shot out," Medlin said.

He saw the massive police response after someone shot two people inside a white Ford sedan. Police initially got a call about gunshots at Broadway and Mississippi.

The windows shattered on both sides of the car, missing a baby in the backseat.

“It seems that's how society today is gravitating in that direction, little by little. People are becoming less tolerant really," Medlin said.

He should know. He was a victim of road rage on Broadway three years ago when he accidentally flashed a driver with his headlights.

"They pulled over two blocks in front of me, jumped out and threw a rock and broke my window," he Medlin said.

Those suspects got away. And so far, so has the suspect in this case. Denver police is giving little information about the suspect or vehicle.

The injuries suffered by the couple are not life-threatening. One victim was shot in the arm and the extent of injuries to the other victim has not been released.

Police also wouldn't say what triggered the road rage.
