HOUSTON (AP) — A man has been arrested after a woman was shot to death in what Harris County officials are calling a road rage incident.

Authorities say 30-year-old Veronica Soto was killed Thursday following a traffic altercation involving the car she was riding in with her husband and two other vehicles. The Harris County Sheriff's Office says a 20-year-old suspect was arrested and admitted to being the shooter but has not yet been charged.

Officials say a traffic altercation escalated when the vehicle Soto was riding in was boxed in by the two other vehicles. They say the driver of one of the two vehicles got out of his car, retrieved a rifle from his nearby home and shot several times at Soto's vehicle as it drove away.
