It's said that revenge is a dish best served cold.
Well, we're not sure about the revenge part, but someone served up a body Tuesday night outside of Danny's Food Mart on Collingsworth in northeast Houston. This was the second murder outside of a convenience store in a week.
Police got a call about a shooting at 3814 Collingsworth a little before 8 p.m. But by the time they arrived, the damage had been done. Witnesses told police that someone wearing a mask walked up to a man just outside the grocery store and shot him in the head, authorities say. The masked man then ran away.
