Arlington, Texas police are offering a $10,000 reward to information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for killing a 26-year-old woman during an apparent road rage incident Wednesday night, according to WFAA.

According to police, Brittany Daniel and a friend were in her gray Honda Accord, driving from Fort Worth to
Arlington, when they noticed a smaller, darker-colored, four-door passenger car driving aggressively behind them.

“Unfortunately, the passenger didn’t get a real good look at the car,” said Lt. Chris Cook, spokesperson for the Arlington Police Department. “But she described them as driving pretty recklessly, zipping in and out of traffic.”

Cook says the car then pulled up alongside of them and a young man sitting in the rear passenger’s seat rolled down his window.

“He allegedly started yelling obscenities at the victim’s car,” said Cook. “[Daniel’s] passenger told us there was some type of exchange between [Daniel] and this man while on the interstate. Then a few second later, she hears at least two gunshots.”

Cook says Daniel had been shot, but was able to pull the car off to the side of the road. That’s when her friend called 911.

Daniel was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died a short time later.

“There was a lot of danger to the community, not just that vehicle,” said Cook. “Those bullets could have gone anywhere. It was amazing that [Daniel] was able to get her car off the road so there wasn’t a horrendous crash. This suspect is very dangerous. He needs to be off the street.”

    What a sad story. I send condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Brittany Daniel. The murderer was driving erratically in the road. That evil person is a stone cold killer and he must be brought to justice. This male is a danger to society. Brittany Daniel was a young Sister whose life was precious and sacrosanct. It is a shame that an evil, pusillanimous person murdered a black woman. The lives of black women matter.

    RIP Sister Brittany Daniel

    This is why I try not to engage or respond to idiots on the road. Some people are looking for any excuse to shoot someone. I hope they find the cretin who did this.
