A test drive of a used car in north Texas ended with a man dead. Now two teenagers are charged with murdering him, according to authorities.

Arlington police say Khudhair Hamdan, 55, was shot during a short test drive March 21. He got out of the car, collapsed and died.

Officers found the purple Dodge Charger about one mile from Hamdan's house, behind a shopping center.

Surveillance video from the area showed two men walking away from the car. That video and a getaway car led to the arrests of Luis Gutierrez, 18, and Cristian Salcedo, 19, both of Dallas, police say.

An arrest warrant reviewed by KXAS-TV shows “Armando Gutierrez” contacted Hamdan's son through Facebook Marketplace about buying the car. Police say Armando is Luis Gutierrez's brother.

Both brothers were arrested after an April 5 traffic stop, while a third person in a car ran away. Luis is charged with capital murder, while the charges against Armando have not been disclosed.


Saucedo was seized at his home last Friday.

Arlington Police advised KDFW-TV that Facebook Marketplace and other social media purchases and exchanges should be conducted at designated “safe zones.” Many police departments have them outside their stations.
