A Detroit father was shot and killed Saturday night outside a liquor store where he worked when he tried to stop multiple suspects from stealing his car, according to local reports.
Thair Dado, 43, was working his part-time job at All Stars Beverage Liquor Store in 10600 block of West Chicago Boulevard when he went to take out the trash at around 11:30 p.m., FOX2 Detroit reported.
In the parking lot, Dado saw the suspects backing his car out of the spot and tried to stop them, according to the report.
