Cops in Texas are searching for the McDonald’s customer who allegedly shot a man to death following an argument at the Houston fast food joint.

Anthony Martin Landry, 57, is charged with murder in the shooting death of 46-year-old Jeffrey Limmer, Houston police said. It happened around 6 p.m. on May 4 at the McDonald’s at 8147 Katy Freeway. Police arrived to find Limmer unresponsive. Paramedics pronounced him dead.

Landry drove away in an early 2000s blue Ford pickup truck, cops said. Detectives learned that Landry became upset about a lack of a refund and started arguing with employees. Limmer, who also was a customer at the restaurant, tried to calm Landry down which led to a verbal spat between them, according to cops. That’s when Landry allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Limmer several times.

Houston police on Thursday obtained a warrant for Landry’s arrest for murder.

According to his biography, Limmer was an associate at the Houston office of Lewis Brisbois. He specialized in personal injury and insurance matters, the bio said. He attended South Texas College of Law and the University of Texas at Austin.

“Mr. Limmer enjoys spending time outdoors hunting, fishing, skiing, biking and running,” the bio said.

His sister Jennifer Thomas said it was in her brother’s personality to try and diffuse situations.

“Knowing Jeff, he’s the one who always says, ‘Calm down. It’s not that big of a deal,’ and divert the situation,” Thomas told local ABC affiliate KTRK. “He’s always wanted to fight for the little guy and do the right thing.”

She said Limmer lived near the McDonald’s and would often frequent the business.

“He loved fiercely his family and friends,” Thomas told the TV station. “Always laughing, making jokes, and just loving life.”

Harris County court records show Landry was out on bond following his February arrest for aggravated assault in which he allegedly hit a family member with a cane.
