The victim and the driver of a green Jeep Liberty got into a domestic disturbance in which the victim damaged the window of the Jeep.  Both persons then drove to a glass repair shop at the above address to get the window fixed.

As the victim exited the Jeep and walked inside the business, the driver of the Jeep began leaving the location.  The victim then grabbed onto the Jeep and held on as the driver slowly drove southbound on the Gulf Freeway service road.  He then let go and began running behind the Jeep and was struck by a gray Nissan Altima traveling southbound on the Gulf Freeway service road.  Paramedics transported the victim to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  The driver of the Nissan, who remained at the scene, was questioned and released.
