Houston police have arrested a man in connection to a deadly road rage shooting on the Katy Freeway.
Frederick Curtis Wilson, 28, has been charged with murder. He’s accused of killing 32-year-old Jaime Ceballos-Garcia.
The shooting happened Tuesday evening as Ceballos-Garcia was driving two co-workers home from work.
Police said Ceballos-Garcia called 911 to report a reckless driver in the area of I-10 and Wirt.
Within minutes, a passenger in the same vehicle called 911 to report that the other car had pulled up next to their vehicle and shot Ceballos-Garcia.
Police said they were able to locate Wilson using license plate information provided during one of those 911 calls.
According to police, Wilson had outstanding warrants and allowed them to search his vehicle, where they found a gun. Ballistics testing will now be conducted to determine whether that gun was used in the shooting.
Investigators said surveillance video showed Wilson leaving a restaurant on the Katy Freeway at 8:21 p.m., just minutes after they started receiving the 911 calls.
In a court appearance Thursday, prosecutors say a store employee confirmed Wilson was a regular and they provided a copy of a receipt showing he purchased two alcoholic beverages.
According to investigators, Wilson has placed himself at the scene of the shooting and told them a driver cut him off. He hasn't confessed to the shooting.
Wilson was being held on $50,000 bond, but he asked for his bond to be lowered.
Court records show Wilson has a prior charged for resisting arrest.
