Man Killed in Road Rage Shooting
At about 4:00 pm on Saturday, November 7th, HPD officers responding to a 911 call found a deceased man, about 40-years-old, sitting in his vehicle in the 6300 block of Beverly Hill Street. He had been shot several times after he and a man driving another vehicle engaged in a road rage incident. According to witnesses, the two vehicles stopped and the shooter exited his vehicle. The two exchanged words, which became quickly heated and then the shooter fired several times, ran back to his vehicle and fled.
The victim’s friend, who was a passenger in his vehicle, was also armed and managed to fire several shots at the fleeing vehicle, hitting it more than once. He was not injured in the initial shooting. Police have interviewed the passenger and numerous witnesses and obtained detailed information, and a manhunt is underway for the shooter. Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is asked to call the HPD homicide division at 713-308-3600, or Crime Stoppers, at 713-222-TIPS.
