Video of suspect vehicle released in Arlington road rage killing


Arlington police released new surveillance images of the vehicle they believe was involved in a deadly road rage shooting over the weekend.

Police say Dylan Spaid was driving with his girlfriend on I-20 around 6 p.m. Sunday before he was killed. Investigators think something that happened on the interstate led to a road rage murder.

Police are looking for a black 2014 to 2016 BMW 535i with the 'M' sport package. The car was seen on surveillance from two different perspectives prior to the shooting.

Police are still unsure of what set off the shooter, but the two drivers exchanged hand gestures before the killer fired a shot that hit Spaid near his eye. His girlfriend, Kristina Huggins, witnessed the whole ordeal.

“I guess they were in a hurry or something. Dylan didn't like it,” she recalled. “They had a little argument. And that guy when he had a chance he just turned around and shot him.”

Huggins says Spaid was shot near his eye. She tried to take control of the wheel but veered off the road and crashed in front of a nearby tire shop.

“I took my shirt off, and I pressed as much pressure as I could to him so the bleeding would stop. But I couldn't do that. He was bleeding out everywhere,” she said. “I wish I did tell him that I loved him and I could've said goodbye when I could've because I didn't get to do that.”

Huggins says a man and woman were in the vehicle, and she urges the female passenger to come forward.

"If she's out there, and I understand it's hard for her to come forward because her life could be on the line too, I hope she has some heart to come forward and tell the police what happened because if I was in her place I would," Huggins said.

Police say they've gotten a lot of tips in this case but no arrests have been made.

“We've got to get this person off the street,” said Arlington Police Lt. Christopher Cook. “You got to pick up the phone. You've got to notify us. Lead us to the right person. We're going to find them. It's just a matter of time.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Steve Greisbach at 817-459-5325.
