Gunman fled on hoverboard following glide-by shooting of motorist

A man on a hoverboard shot a motorist and managed to get away from police in north west Dallas, Texas, early on Thursday.

Police were called to a RaceTrac gas station shortly after 4am. A man was found with a gunshot wound to his arm. The man told police he was driving when he offered to give the man on the hoverboard a ride.

The hoverboard rider, a black male with dreadlocks, declined. The driver came back about 30 minutes later and offered a ride again, but that angered the hoverboard rider - so the man on the hoverboard shot the driver in the right arm.

Police searched the immediate area for the suspect, but he managed to glide away from capture. The victim was taken to Parkland Hospital, where he is expected to recover.
