Lufkin PD Respond to Possible Road Rage Shooting on Southwood Dr.
This afternoon, Lufkin Police responded to a report of a man being shot at on Southwood Drive near the intersection of Wildbriar Street, this happening after the man confronted another driver around 3:15 this afternoon.
The man said he was driving through the area when he noticed a grey car (possibly a Charger) behind him, driving erratically. He said he stopped at the intersection of Copeland Street and Southwood Drive and yelled out the window, asking what they wanted.
He made the turn onto Southwood and said the car turned also as if following him. He then turned onto Wildbriar Street, got out of his vehicle and yelled at the car to pull over. That, he said, is when the car slowed and he saw four black males who he did not know inside the vehicle. They fired multiple rounds at him before driving away. He was not injured in the incident.
Officers recovered shell casings while investigating the scene.
At this point, Lufkin Police are unsure if the incident is related to road rage or if there was another motive. Anyone with information is asked to call the Lufkin Police Department at 936-633-0356 or Lufkin Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS. Anyone calling into Lufkin Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous if they wish to do so. Anyone who lives in that neighborhood who has home security video is asked to please check their recordings from that time period.
The incident remains under investigation.
A reminder to try your best to remain calm in situations that may lead to road rage.
