Police say used car salesman Keith Edward Grimmet had an unpleasant meeting with his boss on Thursday, so he returned to work the next day – and shot him.
Co-workers allege that Grimmet rushed into the Mac Haik dealership in Houston and shot his boss, Robert Kuentz, in the neck. Kuentz is expected to survive the shooting.
Grimmet turned himself in on Friday and has been charged with aggravated assault.
“I’m just kind of tormented right now,” said co-worker Andriko Gibson. “I just pray he pulls through.”
According to police, Grimmet was upset over an argument he’d had with his boss the previous day. Grimmet stormed into his boss’ office and told him he was unhappy about the way he’d been treated during the meeting, but before his boss even had an opportunity to respond, Grimmet pulled out a gun and shot him. After the shooting, Grimmet calmly walked away, according to co-workers.
“He’s regular guy,” Gibson said. “He’s a good guy. I don’t know where this came from.”
