Texas I see but no mention of them being English though, never the less where ever they are from that is terrible.

Seems there are conflicting stories.

NBC says it is an English Family that just arrived in the last few weeks, Fox says an American Family that had been living in the UK for 5 years and had returned home.

Either way, very sad and alarming.

CBS say it was a family from England who'd just moved to Dallas. The shooting happened near the Dallas/Richardson line on Walnut Street.

Words fail me.

Totally senseless. How devastating it must be to lose a loved one to the stupidity of road rage. Our hearts go out to the family.

And how embarrassing to me to be a Texan when another fellow Texan greets an English family in this manner. It just perpetuates the stereotypes.

I wish I could help the family.

OMG... shocking, upsetting, so sad...
Deepest sympathies to his family.

These scumbags give D/FW a really bad name.

I am just so bloody angry... For God's Sake, WHY?

Yep, me too. I just heard this on our local news, (NBC5) how do we find out if the couple are from England, because if one of the stories is true, and they only came here five weeks ago, there is a good chance that poor woman and her child have very little in the way of a support network here, and there are quite a lot of us in DFW now.
