Arlington police are asking for the public's help to find the man who shot and killed a 26-year-old woman during an apparent road rage incident Wednesday night.[[366812391,C]]
It happened just before 7:00 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 30 between the Cooper Street and Center Street exits.
Officials say Brittany Daniel and a friend were in her gray Honda Accord, driving from Fort Worth to Arlington, when they noticed a smaller, darker-colored, four-door passenger car driving aggressively behind them.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"Unfortunately, the passenger didn't get a real good look at the car," said Lt. Chris Cook, spokesperson for the Arlington Police Department. "But she described them as driving pretty recklessly, zipping in and out of traffic."
Cook says the car then pulled up alongside of them and a young man sitting in the rear passenger's seat rolled down his window.
"He allegedly started yelling obscenities at the victim's car," said Cook. "[Daniel's] passenger told us there was some type of exchange between [Daniel] and this man while on the interstate. Then a few second later, she hears at least two gunshots."
Cook says Daniel had been shot, but was able to pull the car off to the side of the road. That's when her friend called 911.
Daniel was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died a short time later.
"There was a lot of danger to the community, not just that vehicle," said Cook. "Those bullets could have gone anywhere. It was amazing that [Daniel] was able to get her car off the road so there wasn't a horrendous crash. This suspect is very dangerous. He needs to be off the street."
Late Thursday afternoon, Oak Farms Dairy announced it was offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and successful grand jury indictment in this case.
