    Texas man is accused of randomly shooting at women in their cars because he doesn’t believe they should be allowed to drive

    Texas man has been accused of randomly shooting at female drivers because he doesn’t believe they should be allowed on the road.
    Nicholas D’Agostino, 29, allegedly confessed to targeting at least five women in road rage shootings in the Houston suburb of Katy dating back to March.
    He is facing multiple charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after two of the women he allegedly targeted in the separate incidents were struck by gunfire.
    D’Agostino was initially arrested after a shooting on July 10 during which he shot at a woman’s vehicle because he claimed she was swerving into his lane.
    The victim was shot in the arm and the bullet traveled through to her chest before becoming lodged just millimeters from her heart.
    Dagostino spent six weeks in jail for that incident before being released on $75,000 bond.
    Three days later, he was arrested again over a road rage incident from March.
    He allegedly shot the woman in the arm in March as she was driving out of a gas station. The driver said she heard a loud noise and felt pain in her right arm, but didn’t realize she had been shot until later. 
    While in prison, D’Agostino allegedly told investigators that he had shot at a total of five different female drivers. 
    Investigators said the cases showed D’Agostino had a ‘very dim view of women’. 
    D’Agostino had allegedly posted on Facebook about female drivers saying they were incompetent. 
    He also said their sole purpose was to give birth to male children.
    In an interview from prison, D’Agostino told ABC13 he was only acting in ‘self-defense’.
    ‘It was vehicular manslaughter,’ D’Agostino said. ‘It’s almost happened to me before.’
    He remains in prison on an increased bond of $250,000 following his second charge.
