HOUSTON — Houston police are searching for two people and a vehicle involved in an alleged road rage incident, in which the victim was reportedly shot in the back while trying to drive away.

Investigators released photos Wednesday of a suspected vehicle. Police said the shooting happened around 5:40 p.m. Sept. 9, 2020 in along the West Loop.
