Father Shot And Killed For Not Holding The Door Open For Woman At a McDonald’s

LAS VEGAS  — An argument outside a North Las Vegas McDonald’s turned deadly for a 31-year-old man.

Family members of Mohammad Robinson say he died Saturday night after he mistakenly did not hold the door open for a woman.

“It’s horrible. I want my dad back and you took him away from me!” said the murder victim’s daughter, Miniya Sampson.

14-year-old Miniya Sampson tries to understand the senseless murder of her father, 31-year-old Mohammad Robinson.

North Las Vegas police say Saturday night just before midnight a man shot Robinson outside the McDonalds near Pecos and Las Vegas Boulevard.

“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,” said Sampson.

Sampson says her father’s best friend witnessed the shooting.

The friend told Sampson, her father got into an argument with a woman that was upset that a door into the McDonald’s was not held open for her. The woman notified a man she was with and that man pulled out a gun and shot Robinson.

The victim’s girlfriend who did not want to show her face says Mohammed was a respectful man.

“He was the utmost respect for his elders. Yes, ma’am — no sir. He’s not confrontational even when we would argue he’d walk away,” said Mohammad’s girlfriend.

Sampson believes her father died because of a misunderstanding.

“My dad would open the door and hold it for the lady but he probably didn’t hear her,” said Sampson.

Sampson prays the murderer is caught soon. The 14-year-old tells us her heart will be forever broken.

“I love him. I wish he was still here,” said Sampson.
