A 14-year-old caught in the middle of what deputies are calling a road rage shooting is alive after the bullet grazed a car headrest, completely missing the teen.

The whole ordeal unfolded on Tuesday at about 6 p.m. as a fight over a lane change along the 20300 block of the Northwest Freeway near Huffmeister Road.

A Texas DPS trooper was conducting a traffic stop in the area when he heard a gunshot. A black colored Lexus sedan pulled up to him, with the driver stating that a man in another black sedan fired one round into his car after both vehicles made a turn and one got into the other’s lane.

The shot narrowly missed the driver and his 14-year-old, who suffered a small cut from glass breaking as the bullet entered the back window.

Investigators are now gathering video from businesses to identify the suspect’s vehicle.
