A pregnant woman was shot Friday night during a road rage incident in southeast Dallas, police say.

At about 10:30 p.m., a driver was involved in a road rage incident near Great Trinity Forest Way and Murdock Road that turned into a shooting, police said.

During the incident, another person fired into the driver's vehicle and the shot struck his pregnant girlfriend, police said.

The woman was taken to a local hospital, where she remained in critical condition Sunday morning. Her baby was delivered and is doing well, police said.

The suspected shooter left the area and has not been apprehended.

Tuesday, police released surveillance footage of a dark-colored, 4-door sedan closely following a silver car they say the victim was in.

Dallas Police Department

Anyone with information regarding the incident was asked to contact Dallas police Det. Cody Clark at 214-671-3685 or cody.clark@dallascityhall.com.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment. The phone number is 214-373-TIPS.

Dallas Police Association President Mike Mata expressed frustration about the increase of road rage violence and the limited impact that policing can have on those crimes.

"We cannot police ourselves out of road rage, that is an individual who is choosing to use violence just because of internal anger, because somebody cut them off, or they did something that they took as an insult on a roadway," Mata said. "We're seeing this more and more and more and that's where society's got to look in the mirror and they've got to fix themselves."

If someone finds themselves in the middle of a road rage situation, they should distance themselves from the other vehicle, get off the roadway and call 911, Mata said.
