Woman killed in road rage shooting in Arlington

- Arlington police are asking for help to find the person behind a murder linked to road rage.

Police say sometime around 7 p.m. Wednesday there was a road rage incident along eastbound Interstate 30, between Cooper and Center streets.

Brittany Daniel, 26, was shot by someone in a passing car. She died at a hospital a short time later.

“For someone to tell me my baby girl is no longer with me, it’s the worst feeling in the world,” said Malcolm Daniel, her father. “That smile is gone from my life forever now.”

Brittany Daniel worked at a Fort Worth location of a Hawthorne Suites and had recently been promoted to supervisor. On Wednesday evening she offered to drive two employees home. She had dropped one off and was on her way to the second location when a small, dark colored sedan driving erratically came up on her vehicle and rolled down their window.

"The passenger said the suspect vehicle may have felt that the victims car wasn't driving fast enough," said Lt. Chris Cook, Arlington Police.

A passenger in Daniel’s car was able to provide police with a vague description of the suspect.

He was a light skinned black or Hispanic man with dark hair, possibly in his mid-20s.  He was in the backseat of a small four-door car, with tinted windows. The car was driving aggressively just before the shooting, police said.

Police say there's no surveillance video to rely on, so they need anyone with information to come forward.

"Don't forget her. Please don't forget my baby girl," said Malcolm Daniel. "If he's angry again, what will he do next? Let's catch him."

Oak Farms Dairy is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the capture of a suspect.

Anyone with information should call Det. Steve Griesbach at 817-459-5325. Callers can remain anonymous.
