Man shot and killed for not holding the door open for woman at a McDonald's
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
McDonald's Shooting, 5PM
An argument outside a North Las Vegas McDonald’s turned deadly for a 31-year-old man.
Family members of Mohammed Robinson say he died Saturday night after he mistakenly did not hold the door open for a woman.
“It's horrible. I want my dad back and you took him away from me!” said the murder victim’s daughter, Miniya Sampson.
14-year-old Miniya Sampson tries to understand the senseless murder of her father, 31-year-old Mohammad Robinson.
North Las Vegas police say Saturday night just before midnight a man shot Robinson outside the McDonalds near Pecos and Las Vegas Boulevard.
“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,” said Sampson.
Sampson says her father’s best friend witnessed the shooting.
The friend told Sampson, her father got into an argument with a woman that was upset that a door into the McDonald’s was not held open for her. The woman notified a man she was with and that man pulled out a gun and shot Robinson.
The victim’s girlfriend who did not want to show her face says Mohammed was a respectful man.
“He was the utmost respect for his elders. Yes, ma'am -- no sir. He's not confrontational even when we would argue he'd walk away,” said Mohammad’s girlfriend.
Sampson believes her father died because of a misunderstanding.
“My dad would open the door and hold it for the lady but he probably didn't hear her,” said Sampson.
Sampson prays the murderer is caught soon. The 14-year-old tells us her heart will be forever broken.
“I love him. I wish he was still here,” said Sampson.
