·2-min read

A woman went to go get her nails done after she shot a teenager in the face during a road rage incident, while she had her three children sitting in the back of her car.

On Sunday, 30-year-old Brittney Alyssa Griffith was travelling on a Georgia highway in the US at around 4pm when she was allegedly cut off by another car.

She continued to follow the other car for about 50km.

When the two vehicles approached an exit, Griffith allegedly pulled out a gun and shot 17-year-old passenger Ashlyn Crouch in the face, WSBTV reported.

Another passenger in the victim's car took a photo of Griffith. Douglasville Police distributed a picture of her and said there was a $5000 ($A7000) reward for anyone who could identify her.

The following day police said Griffith was in custody, and had reportedly turned herself in.

Ms Crouch was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

At the time of the shooting, Griffith reportedly had three children in the car when she aimed her gun and fired at the victim.

The children were aged between four and nine years old, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.

The 30-year-old was charged with cruelty to children, aggravated assault and possessing a firearm during a crime.

In court on Monday, Griffith was denied bond. Magistrate Susan Camp said Griffith went to get her nails done after the shooting.

“That just blows my mind,” Ashlyn Crouch's mother Dianna told WSBTV after the hearing.

“That makes me think she had no remorse.”
