The suspected gunman opened fire after a near-collision between his older white sedan and the SUV around 9:30 p.m.

The woman told police that the man cut in front of her SUV, forcing her to swerve as both vehicles sped north on a highway in northwest Dallas. The man then cut in front again, slamming on his brakes and nearly causing a crash.
