Road Rage Deputy Goes Nuts, Pulls Out His Gun and Shoots Innocent Woman in the Head While Driving | Report

deputy charged

TEXAS — An innocent woman has been shot in the head after reports say a driver with “road rage” opened fire on her.

The driver, Deputy Kenneth Caplan, is being charged for the shooting.

The shooting took place in southwest Houston when the woman was driving on the 610 South Loop during rush hour.

The woman was startled when Deputy Caplan maneuvered his vehicle so as to cut her off — presumably he thought that he owned the road.

When she was cut-off, the woman honked her horn at Deputy Caplan.

She then accelerated to pass Deputy Caplan. Once she passed him, she thought that the incident was over and she could drive peacefully again.

What she didn’t know is that Deputy Caplan was speeding up again alongside her, and this time he had his gun out.

Once he was parallel to her car, he rolled down his window, aimed his gun at her head, and pulled the trigger, according to reports.

The woman leaned back her head and miraculously avoided death — because she leaned back in a split second, Deputy Caplan’s bullet grazed her head instead of penetrating her skull.

“This case is one in a million. I don’t ever see this,” said a doctor at  Memorial Hermann Hospital, commenting on how lucky the woman is to be alive.

With a “second chance” at life, the woman is using her energy to fight for justice and speak out against Deputy Caplan.

“He tried to kill me,”she said, adding “I’m worried that since he’s a cop, they’re going to let him off easy.”

Her worries seem to be justified, since Deputy Caplan has been charged only with “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon” — so far avoiding the charge of attempted murder.

The woman is seen being rushed to the hospital after being shot in the head by a Deputy with road rage.

“I honestly got a taste of death. My heart was slowing down and I couldn’t really breathe. I just started crying because I knew I was going to die. I wanted to call my mom and to tell her ‘I love you,'” the w0man said.

“He was aiming at me and I thought he was going to cuss me out. It didn’t register that I was going to get shot,” she said.

Adding, “The blood was in between my nails, just crazy blood, and all over my cellphone, just covered.”

Evidence led to the identification of Deputy Caplan as the suspected shooter, who also fled the scene after shooting the woman, according to reports.

“I hope he gets what he deserves. I want him off the streets,” said the woman.

Deputy Caplan is currently in jail and can be released on a $200,000 bond. Whether he will be given paid time off or convicted remains to be seen.
