Ex-Texas deputy convicted in apparent road rage shooting

HOUSTON (AP) — A former reserve deputy constable in Texas has been found guilty in the shooting of another motorist during an apparent road rage incident while he was off duty.

Thirty-five-year-old Kenneth Caplan was convicted of aggravated assault Thursday. The punishment phase of the case is underway.

Authorities say a woman was driving on Nov. 11, 2014, when a bullet grazed her head. Authorities say their investigation led to Caplan, who was a deputy in the Harris County Constable’s Precinct 6 Office.

Precinct 6 spokeswoman Maria Corrales says that Caplan was an employee of the office’s former administration, and that the current administration respects the verdict reached in the case.
