A Texas man is accused of ramming his girlfriend’s car and shooting her male coworker in an apparent fit of jealous rage.
According to the Texarkana Police Department, Princeston Crawford is wanted for aggravated assault and deadly conduct in connection to the Jan. 14 incident.
At around 5 p.m. that evening, police said, “Crawford became upset when he found out that his girlfriend was giving rides home to her co-workers — and apparently really upset when he realized that the victim was one of those she was giving a ride to.”
Crawford went looking for his girlfriend, and when he found her, he allegedly began ramming her vehicle with his and then chasing after her for several minutes until he lost her, according to officials.
“However, he knew where the victim lives so he drove there and waited nearby for them to show up,” police said, claiming Crawford used his car to block the road so his girlfriend couldn’t pass and allegedly “got out with a gun.”
“The girlfriend bailed out of her car when she saw Crawford, but the victim slid across to the driver's seat and tried to drive away,” police said.
Crawford allegedly fired several shots at the fleeing victim, hitting him in the arm. The victim abandoned the car, ran to his home, and had a relative rush him to an area medical center for treatment.
Crawford fled the scene, but he allegedly left the weapon behind, police said.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Texarkana police at )903) 798-3116 or Crime Stoppers at (903) 793-STOP.
Crawford’s criminal history includes convictions for illegally carrying a weapon, evading arrest, and minor drug possession, KETK reported.
