AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man shot during a road rage incident in southeast Austin a little over a week ago has died, according to the Austin Police Department.

On Thursday, police identified the man killed as Omar Munguia. He died at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center on Wednesday at 5:32 p.m.

The incident happened the night of Nov. 25 near Riverside and Montopolis Drives. Officers said Munguia crashed after witnesses reported a white, four-door sedan opened fire at Munguia and his car. Munguia was then taken to the hospital with a life-threatening gunshot wound.

APD released surveillance footage and a photo of the suspected car earlier this week.
