Police are investigating two separate shootings that may have been the result of road rage.

The first happened in the 7300 block of Price Street near Dolly Wright Street in the Acres Homes area just before 5 p.m. Thursday.

Houston police said a 22-year-old woman who was riding in a vehicle as a passenger was shot in the hand.

She was headed to the mall when another vehicle drove aggressively toward her and shot into her car, according to what she told police.

The woman is in fair condition at the hospital.

Police did not say if anyone was taken into custody.

About four hours later, another driver got help after stopping at a gas station at 4625 San Felipe in the Galleria area and realizing he had been shot on his right side.

The man told police he was driving southbound on Highway 59 toward the I-610 N ramp. While he and another vehicle were on the ramp, he heard pops.

That’s when he exited at San Felipe, turned into the gas station, and saw he had been shot.

The man said his vehicle had been hit multiple times in the shooting.

He went to Memorial Hermann Hospital. His condition was not released.

Police have little information about the suspect, only describing that person’s vehicle as a grey pickup truck.
