Posted: Updated:

HOWE, Texas -- Police and Texas Rangers are investigating a fatal shooting on Highway 75 south of Sherman Thursday night.

The incident, which was reported around 6:30 p.m., led to the shutdown of the highway near Exit 53 in Howe, backing up traffic for miles.

Howe police said a Houston man traveling southbound in a car with two other people was mortally wounded by gunfire. "It appears the shots came from outside the vehicle," a city official said in a written statement.
