The shooting happened on westbound I-30 near Northwest Highway at about 8:45 p.m. on Aug. 14. Police said the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche, identified as 37-year-old Christopher Shannon, had been shot several times.

Shannon was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in critical condition.

The Dallas Medical Examiner's Office notified Garland police that Shannon had died from his injuries.
