Car Dealer Accused of Killing Customer Over Bad Check

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.

Officer Doug Greene said 47-year-old Munir Ayyoub Ammari called police Tuesday to report that a man bought a car using a fraudulent check when the purchaser drove by.

Police said 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.

Bexar County jail records showed Ammari was being held Thursday on a murder charge, with bond at $100,000. Online jail records don't list an attorney.
