A lawyer in the Houston area was killed by gunfire outside a McDonald's on Saturday as he attempted to diffuse an angry customer, but ended up pushing him to the ground.

The customer, who had already directed his anger towards 46-year-old Jeffrey Limmer as the argument shifted from inside the restaurant to the parking lot, retrieved his gun from his blue Ford pickup truck and fatally shot the attorney. KTRK reported.

The customer left the scene. It's not clear if the police have identified him, but they have not found him yet.

The conflict began indoors when the customer became upset about his order and requested a refund. Limmer reportedly tried to calm him down, which caused the man to focus his anger on a new target.

Limmer's sister, Jennifer Thomas, mentioned that her brother was a frequent visitor to the fast food restaurant and lived nearby, often attempting to assist others.

“A good Samaritan who is trying to do the right thing and not letting those employees at McDonald's go through that,” Thomas said.

Thomas mentioned that their parents were at her daughter’s graduation ceremony when they learned about Limmer’s death.

Limmer was employed at the Houston law firm of Lewis Brisbois and had attended the University of Texas at Austin and South Texas College of Law, KHOU reported.
