Texas couple charged after road rage shooting

Texas authorities say a couple has been charged in connection with an alleged road rage shooting in Houston that was caught on video.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Benjamin Greene has been charged with assault and Nazly Ortiz has been charged with aggravated assault.

ABC News reported that the pair appeared in court on Wednesday.

Gonzalez said the alleged incident happened Tuesday on I-45 around 1960 in the spring.

According to Gonzalez, a man and his 2-year-old son were exiting Parramatta Lane when Greene followed them in a truck.

When the two vehicles stopped, Greene got out of his vehicle, approached the victim’s car and assaulted him, Gonzalez said.

When the victim fled, Ortiz got out of the passenger side of the truck and shot the victim, hitting the back seat window, according to Gonzalez.

Gonzalez said they also hit a car at a nearby dealership.

According to Gonzalez, the victim was taken to the hospital, possibly with serious injuries, but he is in good condition.

There were no other injuries, Gonzalez said.

ABC News reports that it is not known when the couple is expected to appear in court.
