A Houston man was charged with the murder of a Hankamer man in Chambers County Friday night. Larry Dewayne Brinkley, 56, is in the Chambers County Jail with bond set at $750,000, according to jail records. The murdered man was identified as Leslie Evan Larrison, 54, of Hankamer.

“We had a road rage incident that turned into murder,” said Sheriff Brian Hawthorne. He said witnesses reported that Brinkley was driving his pickup truck fast and erratically, and cut off the victim. When Brinkley stopped in the 500 block of Barrow Cemetery Road in Hankamer to take his daughter home, Larrison confronted him and, investigators say, Brinkley pulled out a handgun and shot him.
