A simmering feud over prices between neighboring gas station owners in Detroit turned fatal this morning as one man shot and killed the other during a confrontation outside one of the stations, police said.
Police originally responded to a call about an assault in progress with a bat and a pipe outside a local Marathon gas station, Sgt. Eren Stephens Bell, a spokeswoman for the Detroit police, told ABC News.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found that one station owner had been shot. He was transported to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival, Bell said.
