(HOUSTON) — Authorities have arrested a suspect in a road rage shooting, reports ABC News station KTRK in Houston.

Victim Kay Hafford, 22, was shot in the head after honking at another driver on March 20. She survived and is expected to make a full recovery.

Deputies say they found the car and the possible weapon used in the shooting on the North Freeway.

Authorities are on the scene at an apartment complex in north Houston, KTRK reports. The Harris County Sheriff’s Department declined to comment to ABC News.

Hafford was on her way to work that Friday morning when she honked at a drinker of a white Chevy Tahoe who cut her off, she had told ABC News.

Police said that minutes later the driver pulled up right next to Hafford’s car, fired a single shot through her passenger-side window and then took off.

She still managed to pull over and call authorities.

“When I heard Siri, that’s when I cried.” she said. “When I heard her say, ‘Who do you want to call?’ I said 911 and a 911 operator picked up. That’s when I lost it.”
