A couple accused in a road rage shooting is being let out of jail for now. 

Police say on Valentine’s Day, Oniesha Herrera was weaving in and out of traffic on I-25 with her boyfriend, Steven Lovato, in the passenger seat. 

The victim says he gave the duo an obscene hand gesture when they cut him off near Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, and that’s when Herrera drove up beside him as Lovato opened fire. 

The man was hit in the legs. A tip said the couple was bragging about the shooting on their shared Facebook page. 

The state pushed to keep both locked up until trial, but Judge Charles Brown agreed to release them. 

Court records show neither has any major criminal history in New Mexico.
