Residents who live in the apartment complex next to the Conoco gas station say they've had issues being short changed all the time, but this is the first that anyone has been killed over it.

At about 3:30 this afternoon a black male went into the convenience store, and got into an argument with a cashier over money.

Neighbors tell us that the man accused the cashier of shortchanging him. This argument caused a security guard who patrols the gas station to get involved. The Harris County Sheriff's Office tells us that once the security guard stepped in, things got violent between the guard and the customer.

The guard shot the victim once, and he died at the scene. The Harris County Sheriff's Office hasn't confirmed the number of shots fired, only that the victim was hit once.

As for the security guard it is unknown if he will face charges.
