HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after a man was shot during a road rage incident in northwest Harris County Thursday, deputies with Harris County Sheriff’s County said.
Cy Fair EMS and HCSO responded to reports from Jersey Village police of a gunshot victim in the 10700 block of Glenora around 11 p.m.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they located a 27-year-old man with gunshot wounds.
KPRC 2′s Re’Chelle Turner spoke to the victim who was discharged from the hospital earlier Friday morning.
According to investigators, the victim was involved in a road rage incident with someone prior to him being shot.
“It can happen at anytime. I wasn’t thinking about it. It wasn’t a thought. I was just coming home to eat a Subway sandwich,” the man said.
The man says it started after another driver was swerving in and out of lanes.
“I tried to pass him and he almost hit me. We got off the freeway and he flashed his lights at me,” the man said.
Jersey Village police say the victim and the suspect stopped in the middle of the service road and had a verbal altercation. The man says the suspect pulled out a gun and shot several times.
“One of the bullets grazed my neck and the other one hit me in the back,” he said.
The man was able to drive home to the Linc at Cypress Apartment on Glenora Drive before calling for help.
The victim told KPRC 2 he is grateful to be alive.
“I’m very grateful it missed me... I’m here still. This neck wound could have been serious. I’m happy that I am alive,” the man said.
Investigators said the suspect may have been in a lifted Toyota or Ford pickup truck, but they are trying to find a better description of the suspect’s vehicle.
