Traffic accident leads to shooting
By LeaAnne Klentzman
Sugar Land police responded to a shooting call that occurred in the area of Cotton Stock and Planters near the Saint Lawrence Catholic Church in First Colony area of Sugar Land, at about 6:30 on Friday evening, January 31, 2014.
According to Sugar Land police spokesman Doug Adolph, the victim told police that he and his family were driving to dinner when they were involved in an accident. Adolph said the vehicle that hit the family fled the accident scene, so the man, with his family, followed that vehicle coming to a stop in the area of Cotton Stock and Planters. As the two vehicles were stopped, squared off with one another, someone in the car that hit the family got out, waved a gun around and fired two shots into the windshield of the family’s car.
Again the suspect vehicle fled the scene. However, that suspect vehicle was nabbed by Sugar Land police a short time later at Colony Meadows Elementary School, said Adolph.
The man driving his family suffered what Adolph described as superficial wounds and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Initially three males that were in the suspect vehicle were detained for questioning. After questioning, two were released and Jon Letang, 24, was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
