APD identifies man killed in 'road rage' shooting in Northeast Austin

The Austin Police Department has identified the man killed in a possible road rage incident in Northeast Austin last week.

39-year-old Arlen Brandon Sanchez died following a possible drive-by shooting at the intersection of Cameron Road and Rutherford Lane on the morning of Sept. 14, says APD.

An older model Cadillac had crashed into a utility pole after the shooting occurred, and when officers responded, they found that the driver, identified as Sanchez, had sustained a gunshot wound.

ATCEMS transported Sanchez to Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead shortly after 10 a.m.    

On-scene witnesses provided information that this appeared to be a "road rage" incident between the Cadillac and a dark grey newer model Audi (possibly an A-4). The driver of the Audi was described as a Black male with short hair.  

Detectives are asking anyone with information or video of the incident to call APD Homicide at 512-974-TIPS, email homicide.apd@austintexas.gov, utilize the Crime Stoppers tip line at 512-472-8477 (TIPS), or the Crime Stoppers app. You may remain anonymous.
