A woman was fatally shot in the head on a Fort Worth, Texas, area road in a reported road-rage incident this week, police said Tuesday.


Paola Nunez Linares, 37, and her husband were driving in Hurst, a city between Fort Worth and Dallas, shortly after 9 p.m. when she was shot, Hurst police said in a statement.


She was struck in the head, and paramedics rushed her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.


Zane Jones, her husband, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth he was behind the wheel when he flipped off a car that was driving aggressively. The gunman fired at the couple’s minivan, and his wife was shot in the back of the head, Jones said.
