Both suspects wanted in connection to an apparent road rage shooting that injured a 4-year-old boy on Interstate 90 Sunday evening have been arrested. 

Jonathan Smith, 20, was arrested on an attempted murder warrant Wednesday. Leon Edwards, 21, was arrested by U..S. Marshals in Goodwater, Ala. early Thursday. 

Cleveland police said the incident started when the boy's mother honked at a stopped white Pontiac in the area of West 28th Street and Division Avenue. 

The Pontiac followed the woman onto Route 2 and I-90, just east of Dead Man's Curve.

The woman was approaching East 55th Street exit ramp when the Pontiac drove up alongside her vehicle and fired eights shots, four of which hit her car, according to the police report.

The boy was taken to University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital where he underwent surgery to remove a bullet from his head. Police said the bullet fragments did not penetrate his brain.
