Reserve deputy constable Kenneth Caplan was taken into custody following a road rage shooting this week in which he allegedly shot a woman in the head.
Deputy Caplan works for the Harris County Precinct 6 in Houston, Texas. He has now formally been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Local KHOU 11 says that Caplan was taken into custody Wednesday morning, after being accused of shooting a 20-year-old woman.
The victim, who says she does not want to be identified publicly, said “I feel like I got a taste of death honestly.”
She is afraid of going public with her personal information, for fear that police will target her and retaliate.
“All of a sudden I’m driving, and this guy cuts me off. He was about to hit me. I switched to the other lane, I got in front of him and I cut him off. I guess that pissed him off. He went like that and he just fired at me. And then all of sudden I heard a ring in my ear.”
The passenger riding in Caplan’s car was questioned but not ultimately arrested, even though she was said to have been complicit in the shooting, moving out of the way for Caplan to take the shot.
“She leaned back,” the anonymous victim explained.
