Arrest Made In Fatal Road Rage Shooting

CICELY MITCHELL, CBS Houston

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Authorities made an arrest after a deadly road rage shooting this week. Frederick Curtis Wilson, 28, was apprehended and is expected to make his first court appearance on murder charges Thursday.

Reports indicate that Wilson was arrested after his license plate was tracked. Wilson told police that he was driving home after having dinner near the Katy Freeway and Gessner Tuesday night and said the motorist in front of him tapped on his brakes. He then said no more after telling authorities to consult with his lawyer.

Police believe he is the individual who is responsible for fatally shooting that motorist who was in front of him. Police are calling the situation one of road rage.

After the shooting, homicide detectives went to Wilson’s house and saw a dark green Chevy Malibu (the same one noted in the shooting) parked in his driveway. They arrested him on outstanding traffic warrants and when they searched his car, found a 45 caliber handgun. A ballistics test will be run to see if that gun matches the bullet that killed the victim. No other information was released at the time of this report.
