'Unreal scene': Manhunt for gunman who kills 2 after crash on Houston highway
Houston police were searching Friday for a gunman who shot and killed two men in a rush-hour crash on a Texas freeway before he was chased off by a witness who opened fire on the suspect.​
Police said it is unclear whether the original incident was a case of road rage, or whether the individuals knew each other. Houston Police Assistant Chief Bobby Dobbins noted that narcotics were found in the targeted car....​
The melee erupted around 6 p.m. on eastbound Interstate 10 in Houston when the gunman's car, in which two people were riding, struck the victims' silver Nissan from the side, spinning it around and forcing it off the roadway. As the car rolled downhill, the gunman — armed with what one witness told police was a long gun, similar to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle — jumped from his vehicle and began firing.​
When the target car came to a halt, the suspect, described as an Hispanic male, rushed to the front of the vehicle and fired into the windshield, striking both occupants in the chest.​
...A witness who watched the scene unfold, said the suspect at one point looked at him, Dobbins said. The witness, in turn, grabbed a pistol he carries in his vehicle and began firing at the suspect, chasing him off.​
