MILWAUKEE — Surveillance video obtained by TODAY'S TMJ4 showed the victim in a deadly shooting Friday may have known the person who pulled the trigger.

Milwaukee Police were called to the BP gas station at West Lisbon Avenue and 27th about 2 a.m.

Security video showed the 47-year-old man getting out of a minivan and going into the store. Minutes later, as the victim is opening the door to the same minivan, he was shot and killed.

Workers said they could not talk. Customers said they are shaken up by the news.

"I don't know about now, but I came just to check and see what's going on this morning, but I will be more careful," said Timothy Nelson, when asked if he felt safe getting gas there.

Two years ago, a worker at the same BP gas station was beaten to death by a person in the store.
