Mechanic dad forced to his knees and executed by gunshot after row over £415

A dad has been brutally executed by gunfire in a row over £415 he was owed for repairing a truck.

Mechanic, Luis Manuel Casillas, 29, was chased down and forced onto his knees before being shot dead ahead of Christmas, in Houston, Texas, US last week.

An argument with a customer at Luis' garage boiled over and when the father-of-two decided to write off the repair payment and let it go, he was chased after by a group of five men.

Witnesses told the tragic 29-year-old's sister that he desperately ran for his life "through all the side businesses he could run through" until the gang caught up with him.

"'I have a family, just take whatever you want," Luis pleaded.

Sandy Casillas, Luis's sister, told local media: "They shot him in the head. [Point] blank. They put him on his knees, and they shot him in the head."

Luis who had a wife and two daughters aged two and three, was taken to hospital for his injuries where he was pronounced dead.

"He was a a father, a son, a brother, an uncle," Sandy mourned.

With police yet to identify let alone arrest any suspects, heartbroken Sandy has pledged to fight for justice for her late brother and asks mums of Luis' killers to hand their sons in.

She said: "I'll be damned if I let this case go cold. My brother will get his justice.

"You don't do that to any human beings. You don't do that to animals. How do you do that to my brother?

"What they did is not fair and if you're the mother of those six individuals, at least be a good enough mother to turn your child in."
