ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Road rage gone badly was how one business owner on the intersection of 2nd & West County Road explained how someone could possibly shoot another after being cut off on the road.

Business owner, Eric Pineda said, “It’s something extreme.”

Police say they were called early Sunday morning to speak to the victim 46 year old Maria Marquez at Medical Center Hospital. She told them the GMC truck she was in may have cut off some speeding bikers which led them to shoot at her, grazing her head and leaving a bullet hole on the rear side door.

Corporal Steve LeSueur of the Odessa Police Department said, “Right when the shots were being fired there were two motorcycles right next to them. One motorcycle was being occupied one time by a white male subject in his late 30’s wearing a bandana. The second motorcycle was occupied two times by a white male in his late 30’s wearing a bandana and the second subject on the back possibly a male or a female.

Pineda couldn’t believe something like this could escalate.

“Road rage is something a lot of people can’t control. Probably going to endanger someone’s life over something so small,” said Pineda.

He hopes the police would be able to find the person responsible for the shooting.

“I wish they will catch somebody like this because this is our neighborhood, this is where we live. It’s nice to keep our area safe instead of having people like this running wild,” said Pineda.

Marquez has been released from Medical Center Hospital. Odessa Police urges anyone who has any information to call OPD or Odessa Crimestoppers at 333-TIPS.
