The store where the owner was shot and killed Thursday night fell victim to a burglary early Saturday morning, Houston police said.
The break-in happened around 1 a.m. at the Gulf gas station on Liberty and Pannell in Houston’s Greater Fifth Ward, according to Metro Video. An unknown number of suspects appeared to have broken into the business through the rear of the building.
That very gas station was the scene of a more gruesome crime about 24 hours earlier.
A store owner was shot and killed in the parking lot around 11 p.m. Thursday during a robbery, according to Houston police.
The manager, 32, was walking to his car with the day’s earnings to deposit and was approached in the parking lot by an armed man.
During the encounter, the suspect opened fire on the manager, fatally striking him in the process.
The gunman took the bag of money and fled southbound on Pannell, police said. The man is described as having short dreadlocks and wearing a red shirt with a white stripe
