MILWAUKEE -- A two-month-old girl was shot while in a vehicle on I-43 on Sunday evening, September 11th.

Officers from the Glendale Police Department were in the area of Port Washington Rd. and Hampton Ave. around 4:45 p.m.

"The cops were right behind them. It was like a blink of an eye, everybody was here," said Lamont Lanfair, a witness.

Lanfair works across the street. He thought at first, it was a regular traffic stop.

"I didn't think anything tragic happened like this. So I went back into the building and helped a guest," Lanfair said.

The child was taken to Children's Hospital with what officials say are non-life threatening injuries.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office is overseeing the investigation. Officials temporarily shut down northbound I-43 at Keefe as deputies look for the location of the actual shooting. The interstate was reopened to traffic at 7:40 p.m.

Meanwhile, Lanfair hopes the little girl is going to be okay.

"It's unspeakable. Especially for a little kid, that age, to have to go through this, and for the parents to deal with this," Lanfair said.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office has not said what led up to the shooting -- or if there are any suspects.

    How i got my Ex husband back when he was Cheating on me and left me with two kids. I’m Candace Clifton, a US citizen, 26 years Old. I reside here in Denton, TX, United States. My husband and I have been married for about 14 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on.

I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again.
