12:35 p.m.

Newly released 911 recordings depict a chaotic scene following what police describe as the road-rage killing of a 3-year-old boy in Little Rock.

The calls were released Tuesday to The Associated Press under an open-records request to Little Rock police. In them, a woman can be heard wailing and screaming as bystanders called 911 seeking help for the child.

Police say the boy’s grandmother, Kim King-Macon, told authorities that a man in a black Chevrolet Impala opened fire on her car at a stop sign Saturday. She said she didn’t realize her grandson had been shot until she pulled into a shopping mall, about 10 miles from where the shooting occurred.

No arrests have been made, and authorities are offering a $40,000 reward in the case.
