At around 3 p.m. Tuesday, TPD officers were dispatched to the 3400 block of East Grant Road near Dodge Boulevard after two twin 5-year-old girls were shot during a road rage incident. The children were immediately treated, with one of the sisters transported to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
After further investigation, TPD determined that 36-year-old Dominick Cooke nearly collided with the vehicle occupied by the two 5-year-olds.
Police said Cooke allegedly continued to drive “aggressively and erratically” alongside the victims’ vehicle until a verbal confrontation took place between the passenger of Cooke’s vehicle and the father of the children, who was said to be driving their vehicle.
