On Thursday, a couple was shot and killed over an alleged parking dispute, according to People Magazine.
The incident occurred on September 7 at roughly 7:50 p.m., when police were called onto the scene after a fight call was received. Upon arrival, both Juan Guizar-Gutierrez, 39, and Maricela Honorato, 44, were found with gunshot wounds. Guizar-Gutierrez was pronounced dead on the scene, and Honorato was pronounced dead later that evening while in the hospital.
