HOUSTON – A 28-year-old woman was in fair condition after getting shot in the head during a possible road-rage incident in Houston.

According to our sister website, Click2Houston.com, the shooting happened at 7 a.m. near the Airtex exit along Interstate 45.

Investigators said the woman was on her way to work, when she ran into some sort of issue with another driver on the road. 

She beeped her horn at him and then the driver started taunting her, investigators said.

He eventually pulled up next to her vehicle, then fired one gunshot through her front passenger window.  The bullet hit the woman in the back of the head.

The woman managed to pull over to the side of the freeway and call 911 for help.  She was in and out of consciousness when emergency crews arrived and was transported to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute.

Deputies are looking for the driver who fired the gunshot. They say he was driving a white SUV and wearing a blue baseball cap.
