    Road Rage leads to Justified Shooting

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...n/5418326.html

    SAN ANTOINO In an apparent case of road rage, a motorist shot a driver to death who threatened him with a baseball bat.

    Police said that the shooting just after midnight on New Year's Day appeared to be in self-defense, so they didn't plan to charge 24-year-old Brian Correa.

    "It was apparent to us that he was defending himself," said police spokesman Sgt. Gabe Trevino, who added that the shooter had a license to carry a concealed weapon.

    Correa shot the 24-year-old driver three times with a handgun, a police report said. The Bexar County medical examiner's office identified the deceased driver as Tomas Garza.

    Correa and several witnesses quoted in the report said that Garza had maneuvered his Mitsubishi Lancer behind Correa's Chevrolet Camaro around 1 a.m. Tuesday and began driving aggressively, trying to hit the Camaro.

    When the cars came to a stop at a traffic light, Garza got out and hit the Camaro several times with the bat, according to the police report.

    Correa told Garza to stop, but Garza began toward him so Correa fired at him, according to the report.

    Witnesses corroborated Correa's account with police.

    "I'm still really shaken up. I don't really want to talk about it at all," Correa told a reporter with the San Antonio Express-News when contacted at his home.


    Sounds like self-defense to me, and it helps that witnesses backed up his story.

    Worst case of suicide I ever heard of: Perp took a ball bat to a gun fight.

    Nothing like getting killed because of something that happened on the road. I wonder if Mr. Swings-a-bat was high or drunk?
