Man arrested for deadly conduct in shooting incident

A Cameron man is in jail facing deadly conduct charges after police say he fired a shotgun at a car that had been racing in his neighborhood for several days.
Police responded to a call reporting shots fired at 4:10 p.m. Monday in the area of 6th Street and MLK, according to a statement released by Cameron Police Chief Randy Dixon. The incident occurred when two Hispanic males got into a verbal argument over street racing in the area, Dixon said.
Witnesses said someone had been racing a red Dodge Charger through the neighborhood for several days. Rodrigo Alvarado Tovar, 20, became so frustrated with the driver of the red Charger that he fired over the car with a shotgun. “There were a number of individuals, including children along 6th and MLK at the time,” Dixon said, adding that Tovar was charged with third-degree felony deadly conduct and booked into the county jail.
