According to a spokesman for #Houston’s police department, the incident happened at around 11 p.m. Police say that the 29-year-old father was driving with his sons on Interstate 10 when a bullet fatally struck him.⁠

According to reports, a witness had allegedly walked out of a restaurant, called 9-1-1, and helped the two boys.⁠

The father was pronounced dead at the scene, but the two boys didn’t suffer from any injuries.⁠
