Police said Jorge Sanchez Lua was looking for gasoline, not trouble, but he wound up with plenty of both. Around 2 a.m. Saturday, Lua was peacefully filling his tank at a station on West 19th Street when an angry man walked up and began berating Lua for no apparent reason. Police said the man, known only as "Byron," had just been thrown out of a nearby bar for causing trouble and was still in a trouble mood. Byron had a one-gallon milk jug with him.
