Anthony Martin Landry, 57, was charged with murder on Wednesday in the shooting death of 46-year-old Jeffrey Limmer.

Officers responded to a shooting at a McDonald's near the Katy Freeway at about 6 p.m. on Saturday, where police found Limmer unresponsive with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An investigation by HPD revealed that Limmer tried calming Laundry down, who was reportedly upset over his order and demanded a refund.
