Customer Killed and Employee Injured in a Store Shooting at SW Houston Tire Shop

Houston, Texas – A customer was killed, and an employee sustained injuries after a suspect opened fire at a southwest Houston tire shop.

Houston police responded to a shooting call in the 2100 block of Mansard on Tuesday. Upon arrival, officers discovered a man shot multiple times and a tire shop employee who had suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.

According to preliminary information from the police, the customer had arrived at the tire shop to have some work done when an unidentified suspect entered the parking lot and discharged several shots.

The customer was pronounced dead at the scene, while the injured shop employee was transported to a hospital for medical attention.

The Houston Police Department is actively investigating the incident, noting that the area has been a site of previous shooting calls.

HPD remains committed to unraveling the details of this case and urges anyone with information to come forward.

Thoughts on shootings at establishments

It is quite concerning that the area of this tire shop has been a site of previous shooting calls, yet someone still managed to lose their life at the store due to violence.

What were the security measures in place to protect employees and customers? A thorough investigation by trained professionals needs to happen to determine whether the business did everything in its power to try to avoid this tragic incident.

If negligence on part of the establishment allowed this to happen, the family may have a right to bring a wrongful death claim for their loss.

May the family of the deceased and the injured employee receive the answers and justice they deserve.
