Police say Miranda told a man he was not allowed in the story, which spurred an argument between the two. The man then broke a jar of salsa inside the store before going outside. Miranda then followed the man outside, grabbed a gun from her vehicle and went back into the store.


Miranda went back outside to confront the man again and shot him twice, according to police. Police took Miranda into custody, according to Fox News.

Police have not identified the man, whose condition is also unknown.

Texas is known for having some of the loosest gun laws in the country. According to the Texas Tribune, thousands of Texans die every year from gun-related deaths that are not the result of mass shootings.
