A Las Vegas man was fatally shot after failing to hold the open at a McDonald's restaurant on Saturday (27 August). The victim, Mohammad Robinson, 31, died the following day.
The incident took place in the parking lot of a McDonald's on Pecos Road, North Las Vegas. Family members said Robinson had forgotten to hold the door open for the unidentified woman, which led to an argument.
"He was coming into McDonald's and some female was going out," the victim's mother, Katra Nestor recalled. "The door closed before she could get out and what happened is she said a few choice words to him."
The woman then informed a man who she was with about the argument, sparking an altercation between Robinson and the man. According to reports, the pair then argued before the man brandished a gun and shot Robinson several times.
Robinson's 14-year-old daughter, Miniya Sampson expressed her grief over her father's killing. "It's horrible. I want my dad back and you took him away from me," Sampson told News 3 Las Vegas.
"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," she added. The victim's daughter said her father's best friend witnessed the shooting.
Sampson said she believed her father's life was taken over a misunderstanding. "My dad would open the door and hold it for the lady but he probably didn't hear her," she said. "I love him. I wish he was still here."
Robinson's girlfriend, who identified herself only as Shea, started a GoFundMe page to cover the costs of his funeral. More than $6,000 (£4,500) of the $12,000 target has been raised so far.
Describing her boyfriend, she said: "He had the utmost respect for his elders. Yes, ma'am – no sir. He's not confrontational even when we would argue he'd walk away."
Nestor expressed the following message to her son's killer: "I forgive you because God says to forgive.
"But if you are not caught, then you will have to live with that for the rest of your life."
