Two kids — aged 8 and 6 — steered a car to safety after their father was shot and killed as he was driving.
The incident occurred in Houston, Texas, United States, on Friday night.
The brothers told Houston police that their father was driving when they heard a loud noise and thought a rock had hit the car at around 11 p.m.
Upon seeing their father slump in the seat, the boys steered the SUV off the expressway and onto a service road. It was there they ran outside to seek help. Police said they found a woman leaving a restaurant nearby who called 911.
Police said the boys’ father, who was 29, was pronounced dead at the scene from a single gunshot wound to the head. Neither of the boys was injured.
There is no known motive or suspect, authorities said.
“We don’t know if it was a road rage incident. We are not real sure what exactly occurred,” the police said.
