A Texas woman and her partner are facing assault charges after she allegedly used a gun in a road rage incident.

According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon.

The Houston Chronicle reported that the incident began when the victim driving a Toyota Camry either cut off or hit the suspect's truck. The victim denied hitting the truck.

The victim was then followed by the suspects, 40-year-old Nazly Ortiz and 34-year-old Benjamin Greene.

Greene, a Navy veteran, was said to have exited his vehicle and assaulted the victim when both vehicles came to a stop.

The suspect was traveling with a 2-year-old child in the vehicle.

Ortiz is accused of firing a second shot as the victim continued to drive. That bullet reportedly hit a nearby car dealership.
