Illegal Immigrant Opens Fire on TX Interstate Drivers with Assault Rifle — Child Shot in Head
“Where is the [leftist] media? Don’t they care about this little girl? How about the fact that a shooting spree took place? Isn’t it convenient they choose to ignore this story?”
An illegal alien named Rolando Martinez was arrested on Saturday after randomly shooting an assault rifle at drivers in Texas.
Martinez was apparently inebriated.
A seven-year-old girl was hit in the head.
She remains in critical condition.
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Police identified a man accused of shooting at cars with an assault rifle along an 18-mile stretch of Interstate 35 Saturday morning.
Late Sunday night Rolando Martinez, 25, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a 2nd-degree felony. Four people including a 7-year-old girl were hit. The child remains in critical condition as of Saturday evening.
Austin police say the shooting began about 2 a.m. Saturday and ended around 3:15 a.m. Calls to 911 came in from multiple places along I-35, stretching from south Austin at Stassney Lane up to Wells Branch Parkway.
“We have a lot of crime scenes. We have several people that were injured in this,” said Austin Police Assistant Chief Joseph Chacon on Saturday.
KXAN spoke with one of Martinez’s sisters and learned he’s the oldest of six siblings. She described him happy, calm and was shocked to hear the news. The family hasn’t had the chance to speak with him and tearing up, she said she’s “not sure what went wrong that night.”
Martinez’s bond is set at $1 million. According to Travis County Jail records, he has an Immigration and Naturalization Service detainer on him.
