Police on Friday released a more specific description of the vehicle of interest in a fatal road rage shooting on Interstate 20 in Arlington.
Investigators are seeking a 2014-2016 black BMW 535i with an M Sport package, Arlington police tweeted.
Police had released two surveillance photographs of the vehicle on Thursday, describing it as a “vehicle of interest” in the road rage killing of Dylan Spaid, 19, of Grand Prairie, on Sunday.
Never miss a local story.
The first photograph was at South Cooper Street and Arbrook Boulevard, showing Spaid’s white pickup truck traveling south on South Cooper Street.
A second photograph was captured from an auto dealership on an I-20 service road, between Cooper Street and Matlock Road, with a clearer view of the car.
Detectives believe Spaid’s truck entered the freeway at Cooper Street and approached Matlock Road.
A witness told police that at some point a black four-door passenger car pulled up alongside Spaid’s truck and someone fired at least one shot through a rolled-down passenger window.
Witnesses said they believe there were at least two people in the black car.
After the shooting, the black car continued eastbound on I-20.
Police responded to the report of a major crash about 5:50 p.m. The person reporting the accident said the pickup struck a National Tire and Battery sign at 802 West I-20.
When officers approached the vehicle, they saw the male driver had suffered a gunshot wound.
The man was later identified as Spaid, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
Spaid’s girlfriend, a passenger, was injured in the crash, but she was not wounded by the gunshot.
