Motel Owner Killed in Front of Children Over $5 Pool Pass: Cops
A Connecticut man shot a motel owner in front of a group of children over an argument about $5, according to police. The Hartford Courant reports that Alvin Waugh, the suspect, allegedly got into an argument with Zeshan Chaundhry over the cost of a pool pass on Sunday afternoon. Waugh’s girlfriend allegedly argued with Chaundhry first. Waugh then allegedly got involved, and the Motel 6 owner tried to get an employee to lock the couple outside the building. Waugh returned and briefly argued with Chaundhry again before he pulled a gun from his pocket and fired several rounds, according to surveillance video from the building cited by police. Waugh fled the scene and threw his gun into a nearby river before he was arrested. He was charged with reckless endangerment, carrying a fireman without a permit, and first-degree reckless endangerment. Chaundhry was rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
