    Dad to wanted gunman: Does hand gesture 'require you to execute' my son?

    HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Homicide detectives released new information Friday afternoon after a 17-year-old was shot and killed while heading home from an Astros game with his family.

    According to his mother, 17-year-old David Castro passed away as he was on life support following the shooting Tuesday night.

    Police said the shooting, which is being investigated as a road rage incident, happened at about 11:05 p.m. on July 6.

    Paul Castro and his two sons were leaving the Astros game when they encountered a man in a white sedan on Chartres, police said.

    Something happened between the father and the driver of the car, according to police, and the two exchanged hand gestures.

    The suspect followed the family onto I-10 for almost five miles to the 600 block of McCarty before shooting several times into their back window, according to police.

    What the actual (so many choice words) is going on with people lately? Have there always been this many fatal road rage incidents? It seems like the last couple of years have just been filled with them. So scary. You never know who out there is one second away from snapping.

    And maybe rim / custom shops as well.

    The article vaguely implies that the headlights and rims might be custom (headlights described as having a "yellow tint", rims with "seven holes".

    They really need to run down the possibility of custom rims. If they are custom, there are hundreds of variations offered for sale. That number, however, is very finite. Hopefully, the manufacturer can be identified.

    Likewise, there is a finite number of custom rim vendors. Off hand, I know of two, possibly three such shops in a five suburb mixed income / interests area of the urban sprawl where I live.

    Though it looks like some tire store chains sell fancy rims via special order, every store in that chain would use the same catalog offering rims from selected manufacturers. Thus, it is possible that the specific rim would eliminate all the stores in the chain.

    Hmm.... I wonder how many shops offer custom rims and custom headlights?
