    Man shoots 15-year-old in Dallas road rage incident

    DALLAS — A man shot and killed a 15-year-old Friday during an incident in which both brandished weapons, Dallas police said.
    Police plan to refer the death of Frank Vega to a grand jury.
    "We don't know who displayed a weapon first, but both were armed, and we believe it could be a case of self-defense," said Sgt. Bruce McDonald.
    Investigators say Anthony Gray, 30, told them he was going home around 3:45 a.m. Friday when a teenager in a Cadillac cut him off in the roadway.
    Gray and Vega argued at a stoplight and then both pulled out handguns. Gray fired multiple shots, hitting the teenager in the chest. Vega's car veered off the road; Gray pulled over and called 911, police said.
    Authorities say the teenager did not fire his weapon.
    "It's sad that we have a 15-year-old out on the street at that time of the morning armed," McDonald said.

    What age do you have to be for a license in Tx? Not many details but based on what I see probably a good shoot. :o

    15 if you have a permit and someone 18+ in the front seat, 16 if you have an actual license.

    That goes city by city. There's not a statewide curfew.

    But yeah I'm seeing this as most likely a good shoot.

    Here I think if you have a jr license and are coming from work you can drive after 9. But you have to be 16 or 17 to get one.

    i live in OK and i know they changed the rules around but back when i got my license ( im 18 now ) you had to be 15 for a permit, 15 1/2 for a license but had to have a "parent" in the car with you, and at 16 could get your actual license to drive on your own, and at that point you could be out until midnight which was the curfew for anyone younger than 18. As far as the shoot out it sounds like the kid may have drew his gun planing on intimidating the older man but the older guy didnt play any games and fired with his own firearm.
