Houston, Texas – Houston already ranks in the top 10 “worst road rage cities” in the nation, but after a recent road rage related shooting, they are quickly on their way to taking the number one spot from Miami.
Ted Mitsakos, 49, called his business partner while driving on Tuesday to tell him that a black pickup was chasing him after he honked at them for cutting him off in traffic. He added that he did not think this was gonna end well, a prediction that would come to fruition after the two occupants in the black pickup leaned out of their doors and began firing at Mitsakos.
Witnesses say at least eight shots were fired as Mitsakos frantically called 911 for help. But it wouldn’t matter as one of the gunman’s bullets struck Mitsakos in the head causing him to lose control of his truck. He struck an SUV before plowing through the apartment of Tony Perez, who was not seriously injured.
“I was showering like three minutes before, and my shower is right there where the truck is,” Perez said. “My shower is not there anymore.”
Witnesses described a black pickup being driven by two light-skinned black or dark-skinned Hispanic males but so far no suspects have been identified. ”We don’t have any license plate or suspect names yet,” said Houston Police Sgt. Chris Cegielski.Tags: Crime, Road Rage, Shooting, Texas
