A gas station store manager was robbed and fatally shot in the Greater Fifth Ward Thursday night while leaving work with a bag of money, police said.
The manager, 32, was walking to his car with the day’s earnings to deposit and was approached in the parking lot, on Liberty and Pannell, said Houston Police Department Officer Ross Watson.
He was shot multiple times and died on the scene around 11 p.m.
