Police officers arrived at the scene and found a 42-year-old man dead inside a car in the median, authorities said. 

“No one ever anticipates just going to work that day and not coming home,” Humble Police Department Assistant Chief Dan Zientek told reporters at the scene. 

Surveillance footage released by police shows two Black males entering the store around 11:30 a.m. They wandered around before one appears to put a bag of chips in his pants.
