KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The family of Michael Ziade say that he always went above and beyond for the employees of his company, First Class Medical Transportation. Now they are in shock after one of his own employees allegedly shot and killed him during an argument this week.

Police are looking for 46-year-old Willie Parker in connection to Wednesday's fatal shooting in a driveway next to the University of Kansas Hospital rehab building on Rainbow Boulevard in Kansas City, Kansas.

"I feel lost. Hopeless, helpless," said Kristin Ziade, Michael Ziade's widow. "He was such a good father and a wonderful husband."

Ziade's family says that Michael Ziade lent Parker $1,500 just two weeks ago.

"And why this person did this to him, I will never know," said Kristin Ziade.
