Dallas police arrested two teens who are suspected of murdering a 55-year-old man during a test drive last month after meeting the victim online for what was supposed to be a possible car sale, Fox News reported.
Luis Gutierrez, 18, and Cristian Saucedo, 19, were taken into custody Friday, by the U.S. North Texas Fugitive Task Force in connection to the March 21st murder of 55-year-old Khudhair Hamdan. The two male suspects reportedly met Hamdan at his home for a phony test drive then fatally shot him and dumped his body in the street, according to detectives per the outlet. Police say,
“Hamdan was found lying unresponsive on in the 700 block of Port Richmond Way in Arlington at around 6 p.m.”
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
According to Chief of Police Al Jones, who spoke with local reporters, Hamdan was helping a family member sell his vehicle using a digital marketplace app.
“Mr. Hamdan was simply trying to help a relative sell a car – and now his family’s entire world has been turned upside down,”
said Chief of Police Al Jones.
“Violent offenders like these, who are willing to kill a man for a vehicle they abandoned a few minutes later, have no place on our streets.”
Both men face charges of capital murder. Gutierrez was already in custody for a different case, and will be held on a total bond of $2,110,000 on charges related to both cases, reports reveal. Saucedo is being held on a $500,000 bond, according to Fox News.
