Austin Police say a road rage incident in downtown led to a passenger firing a gun into the air last Thursday night while thousands of people crowded streets for South By Southwest.
22-year-old Eric Benitez has been named the shooter by police, and he faces a felony charge of deadly conduct.
According to an affidavit, APD tracked a group of men in a silver Chevy Impala using HALO cameras after they were involved in disturbances in the 400 block of E. 6th Street and later at 7th and Trinity.
Police say the Impala was driving east on 7th Streen when a black car changed lanes in front of it. The Impala then made a left turn and stopped at the curbside parking in front of the ARCH. The driver of the Impala was seen yelling out the window at the driver of the black car. Source: KEYETV
