Man shot on Dallas North Tollway in Park Cities may have been victim of road rage

Shooting on Dallas North Tollway in Park Cities could be road rage

A 36-year-old man was shot while driving on the Dallas North Tollway in the Park Cities early Wednesday morning. The victim, who was not seriously injured, called 911 around 2 am from the nearby 4600 block of West Mockingbird Lane.

According to police, the suspect is a black male in his early 20s. The shooter drove a white suburban and is not believed to have known the victim, who was traveling southbound on the Tollway in a silver BMW at the time of the incident.

Road rage is a possible motive, though police are still in the early stages of their investigation.

"Detectives are working with DPS and the investigation is ongoing," senior corporal Melinda Gutierrez said in a statement to media.
