Suspect arrested after 10-year-old girl dies following apparent road rage shooting in Phoenix

Surveillance cameras captured the minutes before a fatal road rage shooting left a 10-year-old girl dead in Phoenix, Arizona, Wednesday night.

Police Chief Jeri Williams said Friday that 20-year-old Joshua Gonzalez was booked into jail on a first-degree murder charge in the killing of Summerbell Brown and three counts of aggravated assault.

The father, Dharquintium Brown, told TV station KTVK-TV that the shooting occurred after he got out of the vehicle to confront the man who was following his auto.

"It's possible that this was a road rage that started earlier in the area prior to the victim's family arriving at home", Lewis told KTAR.

Police have charged Joshua Gonzalez with first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault for the shooting death of Summerbell Brown, who Gonzalez reportedly shot and killed while she slept in the back seat of her family's vehicle, according to ABC News.

Dharquintium Brown and his daughter, Summerbell Brown. As soon as I looked at him in his eyes, he just "boom, boom, boom, boom, boom" through the auto. "What's up?' because he stopped at my house and I asked him 'What's up?' He just got firing, and he shot my auto, and he shot me right here, and he shot up my house and he killed my daughter", Mr Brown said.

Her father, police say, is recovering from his injuries.

They also said nothing will bring back their daughter, and Taniesha Brown says she will never heal from her pain. His pupils were dilated. "He didn't even reach the gun outside the window, he shot through his door", she continued.

"This nightmare is going to replay in my head forever", Taniesha Brown said, according to the station.

"I felt like if I wake up, she'll be right there", said Taneisha. The mother and other daughter were not injured.

"Just to see her wake up from getting hit and just gasping, and then she's just, like, shaken, and she falls over", said Taniesha.

Lewis said that tips connected to a composite sketch and an image of Gonzalez's truck are what ultimately led to his arrest. "There was no reason for her to be taken like this. That's what I can share", Lewis told ABC News.

Phoenix officials say there's no indication of a spike in road rage cases, but police urge drivers to call them if tensions are escalating on the road so that officers can help.
