Detroit police are investigating after a child was shot in the head Saturday afternoon during a road rage incident on the city's west side.

According to police, the 5-year-old girl was shot in the 16000 block of Mark Twain St. which is off Puritan Ave. and west of Schaefer Hwy.

Police say two cars were involved in an accident and kept going until they got to the home of one of the cars involved. That's when the people in one of the cars ran inside the home and opened fire on the other car. Police say the people in the car returned fire, and the 5-year-old girl was shot in the exchange.

We're told the girl was taken to the hospital privately.

Police are looking for all of the cars involved. One is a Jeep, according to police. We haven't been given the description of the other vehicle.
