A 20-year-old man was fatally shot in an apparent road rage incident in southeast Dallas, police said. And now his mother is begging the public for help in locating the shooter.
Officers responded about 7:30 p.m. Thursday to a report of a shooting on eastbound LBJ Freeway at the Haymarket Road exit, according to a police news release.
When they arrived, they found the victim, Reginald Jeffery, inside his vehicle with a gunshot wound. Dallas Fire-Rescue took Jeffery to a hospital, where he died.
“I’m just right now in disbelief,” his mother, Tilina Jeffery said. “I’m still trying to process this. In my mind, I keep telling myself this isn’t real. That’s how I’m getting through it.”
Witnesses told police that a dark-color SUV may have been involved in the shooting, according to the news release.
Police on Friday were still investigating the shooting. Officials said the motive in the shooting appeared to be road rage.
“My son tried to exit off and get away from these people that was chasing them and they proceed to shoot at them, which took my son’s life,” Tilina said. “I’m angry, I’m furious, I’m angry. And I’m more angry, because we don’t know who did this.”
