Police said two men entered a business at about 7:30 p.m. in the 11000 block of Fondren Road. They browsed the store for several minutes and tried to leave without paying.

That's when police said the manager confronted the men and asked them to leave the store. An argument continued as the suspects walked to their vehicle and resulted with one of the men pulling out a gun and shooting the manager several times, according to police.

The men drove off in what police described as a silver, four-door sedan.

Authorities pronounced the 34-year-old victim dead at the scene. Police have not yet released the victim's identity.
