Detroit Shooting Over Gas Prices

DETROIT (AP) _ A Detroit gas station owner, accused of shooting
a rival to death over gas prices, is now charged with murder.

The man (Hassan Masbouth) faces an open murder count, and a
charge of using a firearm while committing a felony. He's been in
custody since the fatal shooting Friday outside his gas station in
southwest Detroit.

Police say the 46-year old victim and several other men walked
across the street to confront the suspect after he dropped his gas
prices by three cents. A fight broke out which led to the deadly
shooting.

A prosecutor says the two men had been involved in an ongoing
price war.
