HOUSTON — Houston police are searching for two people and a vehicle involved in an alleged road rage incident, in which the victim was reportedly shot in the back while trying to drive away.

Investigators released photos Wednesday of a suspected vehicle. Police said the shooting happened around 5:40 p.m. Sept. 9, 2020 in along the West Loop.

They said the suspects followed the victim until they reached a stop light. That’s when the woman got out of the vehicle, walked up to the victim’s window and tried to start a physical fight.

The victim began to drive away and the male driver of the suspect vehicle grabbed a rifle from the car and began firing at the victim’s vehicle, striking the victim in the back.

Police said the suspects fled the scene in a white Ford Focus with no license plate.

Police have released an image of a suspect vehicle in connection with a Richmond Hill shooting on Friday that left one man dead.

On Friday, shortly before 6:30 p.m., officers were called to the Leisure Lane and Richmond Street area. When officers arrived, they found the man with no vital signs.

He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

York Regional Police’s homicide unit has since taken over the investigation.

The car in the image was observed in the area of Leisure Lane at the time of the shooting, police said. 

Police said they believe that the licence plate seen on the vehicle was stolen.

The car is described as a 2004 to 2008 model, black, four-door Acura TL and appeared to be dusty with tires that had low pressure.

Police said the identity of the victim will not be released until a post-mortem is complete.

Investigators are appealing for anyone with information about the vehicle or who may have been driving in the area with a dashboard camera to come forward.

Police are also appealing to anyone in the area with residential video surveillance that may have captured anything suspicious to also come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the homicide unit at 1-866-876-5423.
