Former Employee Fatally Shoots 2 at Houston Auto Repair Shop, Police Say

There were other people, including customers, in the shop at the time, Finner said. It's "very, very sad this time of year — and any part of the year — [when] we lose three citizens," he said. "I just ask our great citizens of this city to pray for each victim here and their families."The two victims were identified Sunday as Kendric Wade and Mary McGehee, according to the Houston Chronicle .

Wade's brother-in-law, Martin Cameron, said Ferraretto may have been targeting the owner who dived out the window, the Chronicle reported. Ferraretto's daughter told KHOU-TV that he had been going through a tough time, drinking often and sleeping in his car.
