In a tragic incident that unfolded on Tuesday evening in Dallas, a 16-year-old boy from Dallas lost his life in what is believed to be a road rage shooting in Dallas that ensued after a minor vehicular collision, according to Dallas local law enforcement authorities.
The Dallas Police Department’s investigators have disclosed that the victim, later identified as Emanuell Alexander, was among four passengers in an SUV traversing Santa Anna Avenue in the direction of Shiloh Road.

Amidst the hail of bullets, the teenager was struck at least once, while the remaining three occupants of the vehicle fortunately emerged unscathed.
In an attempt to seek aid for the grievously injured teenager, the driver of the SUV sped away from the scene, eventually reaching the 4600 block of East RL Thornton Freeway, approximately seven miles from the location of the initial incident.
