HOUSTON – A man is charged after he allegedly shot his driver’s hand during an attempted road rage shooting in northwest Harris County, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said Daniel Rosales Robledo, 32, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

The incident began at Senate Avenue near Beltway 8 when deputies received a 911 call just after 1 p.m. from someone stating he was being shot by someone in another vehicle.

At some point when the suspect, Rosales Robledo, fired his gun several times at the other vehicle, Gonzalez said he ended up shooting his driver’s hand. Deputies said the driver appeared to be Rosales Robledo’s brother.

The driver in the other vehicle was not hurt.

Deputies were able to catch up to the suspect vehicle in the 5000 block of Kleinbrook Drive. That is when they learned about the attempted road rage shooting.

Rosales Robledo was taken into custody, and his brother was taken to the hospital where he is expected to be okay.
