Police say a Dallas-area driver is in stable condition after another driver fired 15 rounds at his vehicle in a road rage incident, hitting him once in the head.
Mesquite police say they received a call early Monday morning from a driver who said he was following someone he thought was drunk. Sgt. Brian Parrish says the gunman stopped his vehicle on a frontage road off Interstate 635, exited his car and fired at the caller.
