Hispanic is fatally shot in alleged case of rage while driving in Texas

For now, the police are working to identify the suspects and find their whereabouts.


A 37-year-old Hispanic woman has died after an apparent rage incident on a highway in the Fort Worth, Texas area. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office identified the woman as Paola Linares Nunez.

According to the police report, Núñez Linares and her husband were driving in Hurst, a city between Fort Worth and Dallas, shortly after 9 p.m. when he was shot in the head. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

According to the victim's husband, Zane Jones, He admitted that he made an obscene gesture at the other driver after the driver almost collided with him.

“He slowed down a little bit and shot through the left rear window into the back of his head, and I didn't know he had taken a bullet to the back of the head at all. She ducked, I thought, and I ducked too and said, 'Out, stay down, I'm down.' She fired again and it went through my headrest, through the windshield,” Jones explained.

Jones said he pulled off the freeway and said the another driver fired again and continued straight onto 820. Jones stopped at a nearby Shell gas station on Hurst Boulevard.

“I told him, 'Call 911.' She didn't answer me and I looked up and that's when I saw that she wasn't bending over, she was slumped over,” the distraught husband explained.

"This is a road rage incident," Hurst Deputy Police Chief Billy Keadle said.. "Two drivers, disagreeing on driving behaviour, overreacting and this tragic outcome."

“I need him caught, I need him prosecuted, I need him in jail. I need you to know that he didn't just fire a gun at a car, 'Final,'” Jones said, “he killed someone like no one else.”

Advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety, which is calling for stricter gun laws, said in May that road rage injuries and gun deaths have risen every year since 2018.
