Road rage ends with gun pulled on victim at store

Victim told man 'If you're going to pull it, be ready to use it'

Another road rage incident involving a gun in the general vicinity of one about 40 days prior ended without shots being fired and with police seeking a person of interest.

A man reported driving Friday along Alsbury Boulevard when he felt he was being followed. The motorist behind the man began honking.

"He decided to pull off the road and go in a store [in the 700 block of NE Alsbury Boulevard]," Burleson Police Sgt. Wes Routson said.

The complainant was then confronted about the time he was going to exit the store.

"He pulled a gun and pointed it through the store glass at the [complainant]," Routson said.

The complainant stepped back into the store.

"He said, 'If you're going to pull it, be ready to use it,' " Routson said.

That's when the other man, described as being age 20-25, white with a shaved head and a black hat, fled in a four-door white car of unknown make and model. A license plate given to police did not match the vehicle.

In the earlier road rage incident in the 600 block of NE Alsbury Boulevard on Sept. 22, one man shot at another, and the one to have discharged the firearm called police.

"This is not the way we want to see differences settled," Routson previously told the Burleson Star. "People can get killed from something like this. One of them could have altered the other's life permanently, if not both of their lives."

Anyone with information related to either case may call Johnson County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 817-469-8477 or text "JCCS" and a message to 274637. Det. Cameron Pilgrim is investigating Friday's case.
