Woman shot in road rage incident on North Freeway

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman sitting in the back seat of a car was shot in yet another road rage incident on a Houston freeway.

This time, police responded to the 13600 block of the North Freeway near Beltway 8, north of Greenspoint Mall, after they received a call at about 8:35 p.m. Tuesday from someone saying a woman had been shot.

When authorities arrived, they found a woman in a car in the northbound lanes.

Police believe the shooting started after one vehicle cut the other one off and then kept going down the freeway.

The woman was a passenger in the car when several shots were fired. A round went through the door and hit her in the arm.


She's expected to survive.

Investigators don't have a description of the other car involved, but are looking for surveillance video.
