In the video, you can hear the eyewitness, who was recording, flabbergasted by what was unfolding right in front of her. 

The sheriff’s office said the two cars were involved in a road-rage incident while driving north on I-45 near FM 1960. The victim in the silver Toyota exited I-45 at Parramatta, and authorities say the suspects in the black truck followed. 

Both vehicles then came to a stop, and that’s where deputies say Greene, the driver of the truck, approached the victim’s car and allegedly assaulted him.

The driver of the silver car then tried to get away, but police say, Ortiz came out from the truck with a handgun and fired into the backseat of the victim’s car, where his 2-year-old son was sitting. 

As the victim continued to drive away, police say Ortiz wildly fired a second shot at him.

Police say the driver of the silver sedan was transported to a local hospital with a possible graze wound, but is in good condition.


The couple appeared in probable cause court overnight. A public defender revealed that Greene is a combat veteran who served in the Navy, and Ortiz, from Columbia, has lived in the Houston area for two years and runs a cleaning business.

According to the public defender, Ortiz reportedly feared for Greene's well-being when the driver of the car allegedly almost hit Greene while driving away.
