HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A man and a woman have been charged in a shooting incident that authorities say stemmed from road rage in north Harris County. Tuesday night, Sheriff Ed Gonzales confirmed they were both arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail.

The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon. The victim and his 2-year-old son were driving northbound on the North Freeway near 1960. As they got off at Parramatta, the suspects in a truck followed them, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

When both vehicles came to a stop, the man in the truck, identified as Benjamin Greene, approached the victim at his vehicle and allegedly assaulted him. As the victim tried to leave, a woman in the truck, identified as Nazly Ortiz, got out with a handgun and shot into the backseat window, Gonzalez said.

As the victim continued to drive off, Ortiz fired a second shot at him. A video shared on social media shows the moment the woman fired at the vehicle.

A nearby dealership was also struck, according to Gonzalez. No one there was injured.

The victim driving the silver car was taken to the hospital with a graze wound but is in good condition.

Ortiz was charged with aggravated assault. Greene was charged with assault, according to Gonzalez.
