Why We Carry: Car Dealer Employee Fatally Shot After Argument With Customers Over Vehicle Price


HOUSTON, TEXAS — At Star Motor Company in southeast Houston, an employee was fatally shot Monday following a dispute with two customers. The incident took place around 1:25 p.m. at the business located on Fuqua Street near Beamer Road. Houston Police found the deceased male, the son of the business owners, in the parking lot upon arrival. He was in his 20s or 30s.

Eyewitnesses, including the victim’s parents, recounted the shocking event. Rimon Khazen, a relative, described the victim as an angel who had always been supportive of his family’s business. The altercation began outside the car shop, with one customer initiating a physical brawl while the other shot the employee twice. The exact reason for the confrontation appears to be related to a vehicle transaction, according to HPD Homicide Commander Christopher Hassig.

Following the incident, both assailants fled, prompting a lockdown at the nearby Morris Middle School. Although the school was not directly threatened, authorities took precautionary measures. The lockdown was lifted after some time, and the school day continued.

Houston Police are diligently investigating, using witness testimonies and surveillance footage. They urge anyone with additional details to contact them.
