A suspect in the shooting was described as a 20 to 30-year-old Hispanic man, but a motive has not yet been released by police, who say road rage could have been involved, according to CNN.
HPD Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference Friday that Hausknecht’s shooting was likely caught on city surveillance cameras.
