GARLAND, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Garland police are working a road rage shooting that happened near the intersection of Northwest Highway and Saturn Road that claimed a man’s life.
Francisco Javier Pasillas, 33, was shot in his white Escalade. His wife was in the passenger seat and was not harmed.
The Southbound lanes of W. Centerville from Gregory to Northwest Highway and Northwest Highway westbound to Saturn Rd. are closed due to the investigation. It’s unclear how the incident started or how many people were involved.
“What we learned was the victim and another driver in a black truck were involved in a possible road rage incident, cutting each other off. When they approached the intersection at Northwest Highway, someone from the black truck fired at the victim, striking the driver,” said Lt. Pedro Barineau, Garland Police spokesperson.
During the investigation, the suspect voluntarily came to the Garland Police Department and was interviewed by detectives.
That person was released without being charged with a crime, but police say he is still considered a suspect in the case.
The case will go to a grand jury.
