A man tried to intervene in a dispute over a car between another person and his girlfriend, police said. The decision led to his murder.
Last week, police in Houston announced they arrested Andres Eulalio Rodriguez, 21, in connection to the case.
Around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 29, police were sent to a reported shooting at a gas station, according to Houston police. There they found the unnamed, 20-year-old victim who had been shot.
Witnesses said the victim was shot and then run over by the suspect, later identified as Rodriguez.
The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators said Rodriguez got into an argument with his girlfriend earlier in the day and took her vehicle. The girlfriend later found her vehicle at the gas station. She and the victim then confronted Rodriguez. The argument escalated into the shooting.
Police charged Rodriguez with murder and aggravated assault.
