Houston area investigators are looking into a stand-your-ground case where after a minor fender-bender, a 22-year-old white male was shot and killed by a 23-year-old black woman. During a morning commute, Crystal Scott and Jonathan Ables were in an accident and pulled into a Shell gasoline station to survey the damage.
According to Scott, Ables exited his truck and ran toward her driver-side door. Scott said he yelled and then hit her door and tried to open it. Fearing for her life, Scott pulled her pistol and shot Ables once through the drivers window and struck him in the chest. Ables died at the scene.
A Harris County Sheriffs spokesman, Sgt. Felipe Rivera said From what we understand it was maybe just a minor accident, while adding, The information were getting is that it appeared to be a minor accident that turned into road rage.
An eyewitness, who appeared on camera but has requested anonymity, said that he did not hear any threat in the seconds before Scott killed Ables. The witness was pumping gas and standing 15 feet away from Ables when a bullet ricocheted past him and struck his car. The bullet left a noticeable impression on the witnesss car.
As for Scotts version of events, the witness said that if Ables had shouted or banged on the car, he would have heard it. What drew my attention was the gunshot, said the witness. I just want to be sure that I do everything in my power that everything is fair. I care about it being fair, he said. The Harris County sheriffs department has not yet responded to Spero News request for any security footage of the shooting.

Sounds more like road rage than stand your ground.
More information and photos here:
sounds like murder..hate crim..he was white.
Good for her!
Good shot placement, too.
You all read what the witness said. Lets start riots in the streets!! Murder Murder, hate crime hate crime, this is racism.
Did you read the article?
It seems that these places must be inundated with cameras all around. They should provide more info. (Or have I been watching too much “Investigation Discovery” channel?)
I got crashed into by a black man at the grocery store, I turned and looked after him waiting for him to say “scuse me” but he kept going. It was a deliberate act of agression. I am a small white female.
In line at a a bureaucratic office, I said hi to a little boy in line with his dad. The little boy said nothing. His dad said “she said hi, say hi”. He didn’t. To my shock his dad then said to me, “He has to deal with Caucasians at school”. I had nothing to say to that; I was too floored.
Hatred of whites is a cultural value of the American black community. We are only here to be taken advantage of.
There are two critical elements here.
The first, and lesser of the two is the witness. But such “onlooker” testimony is seen as suspect compared to the testimony of someone actively involved.
More importantly, her drivers side window was shattered. If it was shattered by blunt force from the outside, she is acquitted. If it was shattered by her shooting through it, she just gunned him down.
The forensic evidence should be obvious. Either the shattered window has a bullet hole in it, or not, and most of the glass is either outside or inside of the vehicle.

Check the link at post #3. There is only a bullethole through it and the bullethole is far away from the door handle. Unless he was Kareem Abdul Jabar, it would be tough to have a hand on the doorhandle and get shot where the bullethole is at the same time.
“The first, and lesser of the two is the witness. But such onlooker testimony is seen as suspect compared to the testimony of someone actively involved.”
A ridiculous comment considering the only person “actively involved” was the person who would benefit from her testimony.
Check out the photos at the link in post #3 — there appear to be plenty of cameras.
Among the underclass, the sin of slavery justifies it all.
Hopefully there will be video from the store to help clear this up a little. If anyone acts hostile towards my wife after an accident I hope she graves’em on the spot!
Wow, that is a great site! If they were cutting each other off in traffic and eventually bumped into each other, it sounds like road rage to me too. But even if he went toward her in a threatening manner, don’t the Trayvon supporters think that isn’t enough reason to shoot??????
Missed the eyewitness account.
Hope there were lots of cameras to make sure it is settled correctly.
