RICHARDSON (CBSDFW.COM) – An apparent road rage shooting on Thursday morning along the service road of Central Expressway in Richardson left one person dead. The violent attack happened at about 7:30 a.m. on the southbound side of the highway.
The incident is still under investigation, but police believe that two drivers got into an argument. One of them pulled out a gun when they reached a stoplight. Witnesses said that both individuals appeared to be driving erratically when they reached the light at the intersection of Arapahoe Road and the service road.
According to Sgt. Kevin Perlich, the suspect fled from the scene. The victim drove south before hitting a pole near the entrance ramp to the highway. Paramedics pronounced the victim dead at the scene. The focus for police has now shifted to locating the shooter.
“This is one of those things,” explained Perlich. “Road rage happens very quickly. Very minor things escalate, and people don’t give it a lot of thought and become angered quickly, and they take deadly and drastic consequences that they didn’t intend to have happen.”
The crime scene extends for half of a mile, so it will likely be several hours before investigators clear the scene.
