Sketch of suspect released in North Freeway road rage case

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A sketch of a suspect wanted in a road rage shooting on the North Freeway last week has been released.

According to shooting victim Kay Hafford, it all started at around 7:15am Friday in the 17300 block of the southbound feeder of I-45.

Hafford said the suspect turned on to the southbound feeder road from Bammel Westfield Rd. Once on the feeder road, she says she was cut off by the suspect.

Hafford said he then pulled up next to her, yelling for her to roll down her window.

Hafford then says she went southbound and got on the North Freeway. As she did that, she said she heard a loud noise, then felt a pain in the lower back of her head, the result of someone shooting into her vehicle.

She was able to pull over, realized she had been shot, and called 911. The suspect continued traveling southbound on the feeder road.

The suspect is described as a dark-skinned black male in his late 20's to early 30's. He has a slim face, is possibly tall, and was wearing a dark blue or black cap. He was driving an older model white SUV, possibly a Suburban or Tahoe.

Anyone with any information about this suspect's identity and/or location is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
