18-year-old killed in road rage incident; 27-year-old faces murder charge in shooting, police say – WFAA.com






DALLAS — This story will be updated as new information is released.
One person has died following an apparent road rage shooting Thursday afternoon in southwest Dallas, multiple sources told WFAA.
It happened around 1:15 p.m. in the 2300 block of South Hampton Road after a “disturbance” at the intersection, police said.
The alleged shooter and the victim got in some kind of argument and the victim was shot in the head, police said. Police said the victim wrecked their car after being shot.
The suspect then drove off from the scene. The driver who was shot died en route to the hospital, police told WFAA.
On Friday, police identified the person killed as 18-year-old Jason Soto.  
The truck that police believe was used in the shooting was pulled over and officers found a weapon inside, police said. A person was taken into Dallas police headquarters, where police learned he had shot the victim.
Tomas Rodriguez Jr., 27, faces a murder charge and was taken to the Dallas County Jail, officials said Friday. A magistrate will send his bond.
Homicide detectives at the scene told WFAA that they will check surveillance cameras in the area for evidence.
No other information has been made available.
Last week, Dallas police told WFAA that they’ve seen an increase in violence on freeways so they plan to use more patrol officers to crack down on aggressive driving.
