Investigators say it happened around 1am at the shop on Mangum near the Northwest Freeway.

Three young black males entered the Black Widow Tattoo parlor and robbed the three customers inside. The tattoo parlor's artist/owner intervened and was shot to death. The victim was shot multiple times and died at the scene.

Jud Osborne drove up to the shop with a friend and knew something was wrong.

"As soon as I drove up, I saw him on the ground," Osborne told Eyewitness News. "I knew something wasn't right."

The two of the three male suspects covered their faces with bandanas and all were dressed in dark clothing.

The victim's identity hasn't been released.

Authorities don't believe the suspects left the shop with any items. The suspects are believed to have fled the scene in a white four-door Cadillac with dark tinted windows and chrome wheels.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222- TIPS.
