Newly released 911 recordings show 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 onlookers call 911 seeking help for the child.

The police says the boy’s grandmother, Kim King-Macon, told the authorities that a man in a black Chevrolet Impala opened fire on her car at a stop sign Saturday. She said that she did not know that her grandson had been shot until she pulled into a shopping center, about 10 miles from where the shooting took place.
