DALLAS — Editor's note: An earlier version of this article misidentified the neighborhood in which place this incident took place as South Dallas. WFAA regrets the error.

A woman has been shot and killed after getting into a run-in with another vehicle that led to a road rage shooting in the East Dallas area, police have confirmed to WFAA.

The Dallas Police Department (DPD) said officers responded at 12:11 a.m. Tuesday to a shooting call in the 5500 block of Winslow Avenue. Officers on scene told WFAA that a woman and man were traveling eastbound on the Interstate 30 service road. 

After getting into some sort of run-in, police believe two men from the other vehicle fired shots, hitting and killing the woman. The victim was identified by police as 30-year-old Nancy Aguilar. Aguilar's car crashed behind a gas station on Winslow Avenue.

The man who was riding inside the car with the woman was not hit or injured, police said. 

Police are checking surveillance cameras to try and find the other car involved in the shooting. DPD said it did not have a suspect description nor a description of the suspect's vehicle.

No further information was immediately available.

Nancy Aguilar, the 30-year-old mother of four who was fatally shot during a road rage incident in East Dallas.

"People don’t care about people anymore, they don’t care about people’s life anymore, and it’s sad," Tony Dilworth told WFAA.

Dilworth said he was at the gas station just before the shooting and crash, and later heard about it on the news.

"Just pray for the family, pray for her loved ones, pray for the world, the people in the world," Dilworth said.

"A lot of people say the world has changed, but the people in the world have changed. Their hearts have changed."

A family member told WFAA that Aguilar was a mother of four and "absolutely loved her children and family and was just full of life."
