August 07, 2018 - 6:16 am

MESQUITE (1080 KRLD) - A man from North Texas has been gunned down in what appears to be a road rage incident in San Francisco.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a driver opened fire following car crash early yesterday morning.

Three people in one car were shot, including 31-year-old Darryl Stinnette Jr. from Mesquite, who officias say died at the scene.

Two other people in the car are in the hospital, no word on their condition.

The shooter took off and so far there have been no arrests.

Law enforcement sources told a California television station they have information that leads to a possible motive.

Stinnette Jr was working as an entertainment manager in northern California when he was killed, according to his family. 

"He had no enemies, everybody loved him to death," said his father Darryl Stinnette Sr. "Every time he came in a room, he brightened it up."

A website shows Stinnette attempted a career in the music industry as a rapper called 'Lil Pooh' after graduating from high school in Texas.

A biography posted on the site Reverb Nation said Stinnette's full name was Darryl Stinnette Junior and got his nickname 'Lil Pooh' from his mother. It goes on to say Stinnetee was always interested in music and in high school made a name for himself by distributing mix-tapes in school. After high school, Stinnette attempted to start a label called 'Badguyent.' 



Funeral arrangements are pending.
