A man killed himself one day after he shot 13 rounds into a car with three teenagers inside during a road rage incident.
Ernest Milligan, 57, shot two of the teens after he got into a shoving match with them because of a fender-bender in Galveston, Texas on Friday evening.
The next day, Milligan was found dead by police with a gunshot wound to his head in a parking garage of the hospital where the teens were recovering.
The teens, two male and one female, were driving a white Mazda when Milligan pulled in front of them in his green Plymouth and slammed on his brakes.
The girl, who was driving and not shot, accidentally rear-ended Milligan. After pulling over, all three teens and Milligan got out of their cars.
They quickly got into a verbal altercation before Milligan pushed the driver, witnesses told police.
The two boys then got into a 'shoving match' with Milligan, police said.
Eventually the teens all returned to their car while Milligan took out a .40 caliber Glock handgun from his car and shot 13 rounds into the windshield of the teens' Mazda at around 7.25pm.
He hit the two boys, one who is 16 years old. Both were taken to the University of Texas Medical Branch.
The driver, the sister of the 16-year-old, was uninjured.
