A man driving on U.S. Highway 75 told Sherman Police that road rage caused a motorist to shoot at his vehicle early Saturday morning.
At about 2 a.m. Saturday, a Sherman Police officer spoke with a 30-year-old victim who reported his vehicle was fired upon in the 4700 block of southbound Highway 75. Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said the victim didn’t go back to Sherman to talk with officers that morning as he told police he was tired.
“The victim, instead of coming back to us, went ahead and drove home to Dallas,” Hampton said.
The victim, however, did give information about the possible suspects. Hampton said McKinney Police stopped the possible suspect vehicle and arrested two people. The driver was arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of marijuana, and the passenger was arrested for drug paraphernalia.
As the victim did not return to the police department that day, and it was unclear Monday morning whether he had returned, Hampton said what caused the road rage was not reported. The victim did tell police his vehicle was damaged by gunfire.
“He’s claiming that there are bullet holes in his truck, and he’s claiming he has one of the bullets, but I don’t know that to be a fact or not,” Hampton said.
Hampton noted that what police are told and what actually occurred can be two different things. A report was filed for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
