It is always extremely sad and disheartening to find out that a life has been cut short due to a senseless act of violence. The latest story involving a death that could have been prevented, revolves around a Las Vegas man who was shot and killed after he neglected to hold the door open for a fellow customer at a local McDonald’s. This is not only ridiculous and unnecessary, but it’s also the type of story that you hope isn’t true because it simply makes no sense at all.
The victim in this case was 31-year-old Mohammad Robinson, whose teenage daughter spoke to reporters after finding out her dad was killed in the McDonald’s parking lot. The Root has all of the details of this developing story, as well as the status of the suspect.
Via The Root:
According to the report, Mohammad Robinson got into an argument with a woman who was upset that the door to the restaurant was not being held open for her. The woman reportedly went and notified a man she was with about the incident, and that man pulled out a firearm and fatally wounded Robinson.
“It was a stupid reason, honestly, irrelevant. It doesn’t make any sense why would you actually take someone’s life over not opening a door,” Robinson’s 14-year-old daughter, Miniya Sampson, told the news station. “It’s horrible. I want my dad back and you took him away from me!”
Robinson’s best friend reportedly witnessed the shooting, Sampson said. Police are looking for the suspect, and are hoping that surveillance footage from the McDonald’s will give them some leads.
Hopefully the surveillance footage will identify the suspect sooner rather than later so the victim’s family and friends will have some sense of peace knowing he has been caught. An argument for something this small was in no way reason to take someone’s life.
