Houston police said a road rage incident may have led to a shooting near Acres Homes last week that left a man hospitalized.

The victim, 20-year-old Jose Lopez, was taken to an area hospital in stable condition, according to the Houston Police Department.

According to police, Lopez pulled out into traffic in front of a white Chevy pickup truck at 8200 Wheatley St. around noon last Saturday, March 20. Police said the suspect then followed Lopez in his truck and fired multiple gunshots, striking Lopez in the head.

Lopez then drove himself to HPD’s North Patrol Station at 9455 West Montgomery Rd., where he was then taken to the hospital, according to police.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact HPD’s Major Assaults & Family Violence division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
