HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 15-year-old girl was shot in the arm in what Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is calling a possible road rage incident on the Katy freeway.

In a tweet posted Friday night, Gonzalez said the shooting happened along the Katy Freeway near Greenhouse Road. He said a person shot at another vehicle and ended up shooting the teen, who was a passenger, in the arm.

"The teen is [in] stable condition, but will require surgery," said Gonzalez.
