A 14-year-old boy was arrested on murder charges after ending the life of a mother while throwing eggs at drivers.
the boy who is not even in the right age to drive was behind the wheel of his father's car, the SUV was filled with teens who were throwing eggs at other cars Tuesday afternoon when another driver began chasing them. The department says the 14-year-old driver then ran a red light and crashed into a pickup truck, killing 45-year-old Silvia Zavala.
The crash happened at about 2:20 p.m. New Year’s Day, according to KHOU. The teens told police the driver of the tan or gold Lincoln flashed a semiautomatic handgun at them after they had hit the Lincoln on the alleged egging spree near the intersection with Aldine Mail Route Road.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says Zavala had just been shopping and was “totally innocent.”
Gonzalez said Wednesday the 14-year-old was booked in a juvenile detention center on a murder charge. He says police will interview the driver of the car that chased the teens.
