(Scroll down for video) People are mourning the loss of a good man who was gunned down by an irritated customer.

According to police in Florida, 63-year-old disabled Navy SEAL veteran Jesus Esquivel of Miami, called AAA (American Automobile Association) for service.

The elderly man wanted AAA to fix the malfunctioning battery
for his 2003 Cadillac Escalade.

After some time, a worker called Esquivel, and told him that he will be coming soon.

Esquivel was angry because he had been waiting too long for the service man to arrive. Esquivel threatened to harm the worker.

Due to the threats, the AAA worker refused to go to Esquivel’s home. Authorities said the technician called AAA dispatch and asked to be removed from the service call because of the threats

AAA then referred the call to independent contractor, 38-year-old Magdiel Hernandez.

Security videos from a nearby home showed that as soon as Hernandez arrived, Esquivel confronted him angrily and shot him several times at close range.

Hernandez was pronounced dead on the scene. Esquivel is being held without bail on a second-degree murder charge.

According to Robert Cabrera, who set up a GoFundMe page to pay for the victim’s funeral, Magdiel left behind his brokenhearted fiancee, family and friends. His parents and siblings live in Nicaragua.
