LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Police have released the mugshot of the man accused of killing a 3-year-old boy during a road rage incident in Little Rock.

According to sources the U.S. Marshals along with Little Rock Police worked with the family to convince Gary Holmes,33, to turn himself in.

Acen King died Saturday night while out shopping with his grandmother, Kim King-Macon, KTHV reported.

According to authorities, it all started when King-Macon made a complete stop at a stop sign and Holmes honked his horn at her.
