Car Dealer Arrested For Fatal Shooting Of Customer Over Bad Check
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio used car dealer has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a customer who allegedly paid for a vehicle using a bogus check.
Bexar (bayr) County jail records show 47-year-old Munir Ayyoub Ammari was being held Thursday on a murder charge, with bond at $100,000.
Officer Doug Greene says Ammari was calling San Antonio police on Tuesday to report that a driver bought a car using a fraudulent check — when the purchaser drove by.
Police say Ammari got into a vehicle and chased the buyer, forcing a confrontation in a store parking lot. The men argued and the victim was shot. Witnesses flagged down nearby officers.
The victim's name wasn't immediately released.
Online jail records don't list an attorney to speak for the car dealer.
