Gary Holmes was charged after surrendering to police in his hometown of Little Rock, Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Harris said late Thursday.
The shooting apparently occurred after a gunman was angry that the boy's grandmother "wasn't moving fast enough at a stop sign", police said at the time.
The 3-year-old boy shot dead in an alleged road rage incident in Little Rock, Arkansas, was identified as Acen King. Police are saying that Gary Holmes, age 33, was the shooter and was turned in by a family member after they saw reports and descriptions of the crime and suspect and called the police.
King-Macon did not know little Acen had been shot until she she drove another 10 miles and pulled into the parking lot of a J.C. Penney store, McClanahan said.
The U.S. Marshals Service says a man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a 3-year-old boy in Little Rock during what police described as a road-rage incident. The Impala blew its horn at her, but King-Macon honked back as she waited for traffic to pass.
