‘That could happen to anyone’: Drivers terrified after another angry Texas man opens fire on strangers

Published

on

A driver was shot in the back early Sunday morning during a north Texas road rage incident — and other drivers who use the same road are terrorized.

“That could happen to anyone,” said Kimberly Young, who often drives past the scene of the shooting. “I mean it’s sad that we’re living in a day and time where we have to worry about everything.”

Police aren’t sure what led to the overnight shooting in Farmers Branch, but investigators said one driver shot up an SUV with four people inside.

The driver of a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Nissan or Lexus, pulled alongside the SUV in the northbound lanes of Stemmons Service Road near Interstate 35 and opened fire.

One bullet struck the SUV driver in the back, but the three passengers were not injured.

The gunman drove off and remains at large, and the driver was listed in serious condition at a nearby hospital.

Police said no evidence suggests the victims knew the man who opened fire on their vehicle — and other motorists said the random aspect of the shooting was alarming.

“There’s pretty much nothing you can do,” Young said. “I mean, you can’t get in another person’s thought process. Like I said, it’s very heartbreaking.”

Police are examining surveillance video recorded in the area in hopes of identifying the suspect.

At least two other road rage shootings have been reported in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since September, while several others have been reported elsewhere across the state in recent months.

A grand jury declined to indict a Houston-area man in the fatal shooting of a Muslim driver in June. The case was investigated as a possible hate crime, but the gunman’s attorney said the shooting was self-defense.

Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained that the recent revelations that President Donald Trump made a promise to a foreign leader that made an intelligence official uncomfortable enough to declare themselves a whistleblower.

Rangapp explained that the President has a fairly wide latitude to conduct foreign affairs as he sees fit. But "when it comes to the 'outside world,' the President represents the sovereign: He is basically the voice of the United States and can negotiate with world leaders on its behalf."

Published

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
