June 18 (UPI) -- The driver of a Maserati who shot a mother in her car following a road rage incident in 2021 has been sentenced to more than 32 years' imprisonment, federal prosecutors said.

Kenneth Miles Davis Jr., 45, of Maryland was sentenced Monday after being found guilty by a jury for an assortment of charges, including assault with intent to kill while armed, in late January following a three-week trial in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

According to prosecutors, the shooting erupted at about 5 p.m. on May 19, 2021.

Davis was found guilty of exiting his Maserati GranTurismo at a Washington, D.C., intersection and opening fire amid heavy traffic at a vehicle occupied by a woman and her two children.

The unidentified woman was shot in the arm and her 5-year-old child was cute by broken glass, while her 11-year-old child was unscathed.

Davis shot seven bullets at the car before firing six more at bystanders.

Surveillance camera footage of the shooting released by the Washington, D.C., Police Department as agents searched for a suspect shows the shooting occurred as traffic had come to stop.
