Shot and Wounded for Getting the Wrong Car in Texas

New tragedy after a disproportionate reaction in the United States. A man opened fire on cheerleaders in Texas after one tried to open the door of her car, which she mistook for her own vehicle, police said and local media. This news item is part of a tragic series of similar events in the United States, where firearms are wreaking havoc.

In Texas, in the small town of Elgin, it is also a misunderstanding which seems to have triggered a disproportionate reaction against four cheerleaders Tuesday evening, in the parking lot of a supermarket. Heather Roth, one of the four teenage girls, thought she opened the door of her own car, turning it into another vehicle inside which was a man. Armed like many Texas residents, he then approached the young women who had finally sat in another car.

“I saw the man get out of the passenger side, and I rolled down my window to try to apologize,” Heather Roth told local channel KTRK. “He then raised his gun and started shooting at us.” Two of the cheerleaders were hit by the gunfire, one of them seriously, who had to be airlifted to a hospital. The alleged shooter, a 25-year-old man named Predo Tello Rodriguez, has been arrested and charged with action causing death, charges that may be clarified soon, Elgin police said.
