DETROIT – A protest was held Monday outside the Detroit gas station where a clerk is accused of shooting to death a customer during an argument over condoms.

More than a dozen people gathered outside the BP gas station near Fenkell Street and Myers Road on Detroit's west side.

It's unknown if the clerk will face charges.
